Survivors of the Holocaust

Survivors of the Holocaust

An award-winning graphic exploration of the Holocaust

Based on a series of a BAFTA-nominated animated documentaries, the artwork in Survivors of the Holocaust has been reinvented to bring together six different real-life survivors’ account of the Holocaust. Every word rings with truth, whether it describes the bleak fear of arriving at Auschwitz or the sheer terror of Kristallnacht, and is complemented by dazzling, clever artwork.

This unique children’s graphic novel aims to bring the survivors’ stories to a new audience. It is an important, timely reminder of the horrors that can be inflicted on innocent people and a reflection of the Holocaust’s legacy today. Its importance has been recognised – Survivors of the Holocaust won the overall award at the School & Library Association awards in 2017.

The Holocaust is an important part of the history curriculum at Key Stage 3 and this book is pitched perfectly for 9-12 year olds.

Reviews

An extraordinary book of first-hand survivor stories enhanced by the comic-strip style illustration ... it is impossible not to be deeply moved by the way that these stories are told ... a valuable range of stories ... Each of the six stories has a unique element that nonetheless tells of the incredible scale of the Final Solution and adds to our understanding from a very human perspective ... I think this is an invaluable addition to any school/class library from Year 6 onwards

Survivors of the Holocaust is a hard-hitting and very necessary re-telling of a poignant and shocking time in our history...The visual narrative provided by strong, deceptively simple illustrations makes for a truly emotive and haunting read and one which must not be forgotten. This very accessible insight into a most piteous time in our history would be perfect for any school library or book shelf...We also love the simplicity of this illustrated timeline. A potted history of key events from January 1933 - August 1945 to remind readers of the major moments of World War II

Poignant ... each terrifying reality is clearly shared by its survivor so that it cannot be, and should not be, forgotten
