Gr 5 Up--From the prominent to the little known, these volumes focus attention on 60 men, women, and one child (Anne Frank) involved in the Holocaust. The biographical subjects range from "Nazi perpetrators and their victims," to "world leaders and policy-makers," to those who resisted the Nazis and helped to save innocent lives. The arrangement is strictly alphabetical; subjects as diverse as Mordecai Anielewicz, Leo Baeck, Nikolaus Barbie, Folke Bernadotte, and Bruno Bettelheim are on contiguous pages. Also included are brief biographies of people connected with the featured person, mention of those who performed similar actions, salient quotations, and sidebars on related topics. In addition to biographical facts, each 6-to 10-page article describes the political milieu surrounding the individual, how he or she reacted to it, and the consequences. Each entry provides a list for further reading. Both volumes repeat the same front matter (table of contents, reader's guide, time line, and glossary) and the same extensive, thorough index. A list of credits for the black-and-white photos that appear throughout offers valuable information to researchers needing images from this period. This unique resource will be in constant demand.
