We Remember the Holocaust chronicles the Holocaust in the voices of those who survived it. They tell us about Jewish life in Europe before the 1930s and about the violence of Hitler's rise to power. They describe the humiliations of Nazi rule, the struggle to keep families together, the fight for survival in the ghettos, the ultimate horror of the concentration camps.

With its moving first-person voices and original photographs from private collections, We Remember the Holocaust is an intensely personal contribution to the history of a period that must never be forgotten.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-- An introductory description of the Holocaust that relies heavily on numerous interviews with survivors and the families of survivors. Adler superimposes a brief historical narrative on the interview fragments constituting the heart of the book, while Rogasky's Smoke and Ashes (Holiday, 1988), Chaikin's A Nightmare In History (Clarion, 1987), and Rossel's The Holocaust (Watts, 1981) use interview segments to supplement a more substantial historical narrative. Adler succeeds in exposing his readers to personal details and feelings of Jews whose families were decimated by the Nazi mass murder, and he thus provides a memoirlike--and very particularized--view of the genocide. A major thematic thread running throughout the text is the shameful lack of international concern for what was happening--from the U. S. refusal to allow refugees into the country to anti-Jewish pogroms in pre-Nazi (and post-Nazi) occupied countries such as Romania, Poland, and Hungary. Black-and-white photographs from the 1930s and 1940s appear on almost every page, and they accentuate the survivor accounts in the book. Although episodic and sometimes too fragmented, this is an appropriate and effective supplement to more substantial recent treatments, and it is an apt beginning point for young readers who find Milton Meltzer's Never to Forget (Harper, 1976) too advanced. --Jack Forman, Mesa College Lib . , San Diego
