About the Author:

Barbara Rogasky has worked as an editor, author and photographer, but now devotes her time exclusively to writing. Her novel, "The Golem", illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman, received the National Jewish Book Award. Born in Delaware, she lives in Vermont. Rogasky revised her critcally acclaimed book, "Smoke and Ashes: The Story of the Holocaust", because "research into the Holocaust is ongoing...Much new information has come to light, figures have been revised, and the depth of participation by various groups has been newly understood." Yet there was another reason. Rogasky adds the book was "revised for the same reason it was written in the first place. The need still exists-perhaps greater than ever before-to remember. Remember, so that what is perhaps humanity's greatest organized horror will not and cannot ever happern again."

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5 Up-In this update of her 1988 work (o.p.), Rogasky presents information about the causes, ghettos, concentration and death camps, non-Jewish victims, resistance, "rescuers," the fate of the most notorious of the Nazis, and anti-Semitism and hate groups today. Readable and evenhanded, the text incorporates numerous quotations and photos that support and extend the information. It includes facts unavailable at the time of the initial printing, such as sections on the regular German army's involvement in the atrocities, and the treatment of homosexuals. Names of some rescuers, including Sempo Sugihara, have been added, and there is expanded information about resistance attempts. An entirely new chapter addresses the Germans' attempts to destroy evidence of their actions and to kill as many remaining Jews as possible when it became clear that Germany would lose the war. This edition offers a more extensive list of references than the original, as well as a listing of source notes for the quotations. The final chapter includes new sections on hate-group use of the Internet and Holocaust denial. Despite one confusing map reference, this revised and expanded edition of Rogasky's definitive work will be a welcome addition to libraries lacking the first edition, as well as a useful update for those looking to replace it.
