Susan Goldman Rubin is the author of the award-winning "Fireflies in the Dark" (Holiday House) and "Searching for Anne Frank" (Harry N. Abrams. She wrote this book at the suggestion of her friend and colleague, Adaire Klein, the archivist at the Simon Wiesenthal Center Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, California, where the actual flag is on display.From School Library Journal:
Grade 6–8—In 1958, Holocaust deniers disrupted a theater performance of The Diary of Anne Frank. In response, the well-known Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal vowed to prove Anne's story true by finding the Gestapo officer who'd arrested her and her family. Much detective work led to the 1963 discovery of the man in question. This "hook" is the framing story for a picture-book biography chronicling Wiesenthal's experiences during World War II and illustrating the development of his unusual career. The book is meticulously researched and packed with dates, facts, and quotes from the subject and others. Back matter includes an overview of Wiesenthal's life. The amount of detail, while admirably scholarly, makes the text rather dense and dry, and casual readers will find it slowgoing. Farnsworth's dark, realistic paintings are quietly dignified. The scenes have a cinematic drama in their use of lighting and in the contrasts between long shots and close-ups. This book is highly recommended for Holocaust collections, but it will be best appreciated by sophisticated readers or those with an already strong interest in the subject.—Heidi Estrin, Feldman Children's Library at Congregation B'nai Israel, Boca Raton, FL
