During World War II, six million Jewish men, women, and children lost their lives under the Nazis, in one of the darkest events of modern history.

Featuring full-colour contemporary illustrations, maps and charts, and historical photographs, this beautiful large format book will appeal to parents and teachers who want to introduce this subject to young readers. Eyewitness accounts and real-life stories of loss, courage, and survival bring a humanity and immediacy to the facts and images, making The Holocaust a compelling and invaluable read for a new generation.
