Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Rosen and Apfelbaum have collected a diverse group of more than 800 works into a resource designed for librarians, teachers, and students. Each of the works' creators is a Holocaust victim or survivor. Some were in camps, others in partisan groups, and others spent years in hiding. Many of the names are easily recognizable, others not known at all.

Five chapters cover memoirs, diaries, and fiction; poetry; art; music; and videos. Following an overview, entries within each chapter are arranged alphabetically by the creators' names. Age-level suggestions are provided for narratives and videos, although many of these indicate ages younger than those for which the piece is actually intended. Entries include biographical information and noncritical summaries of each title. Where applicable, poetry entries include anthology citations, art entries include institutions where the work can be viewed, and music entries give sources for obtaining the music.

Persons are unevenly cross-referenced if they appear in more than one chapter. Often the reference is only from one chapter to another. For example, although Elie Wiesel appears in both the memoirs, diaries, and fiction chapter and the poetry chapter, the cross-reference appears only in the latter. Under some headings the index provides an unwieldy and hard-to-read list of names and page numbers; under others only a long string of page numbers is offered. Some broad categories in the index, such as artworks and poetry, might have been better placed in appendixes.

In spite of these flaws, this volume will be valuable to all who are researching the Holocaust. Its strength lies in the inclusion of materials not often found elsewhere. Even the most knowledgeable Holocaust educator may not be aware of some of the works that are represented. RBB

Review

..."helps researchers find 800 first-person accounts, fiction, poetry, art interpretations and music by Holocaust victims and survivors... This will be a helpful resource to those who are teaching the Holocaust, as well as in literature, music and art classes that wish to add these authors and artists to those they presently study. The brevity of the entries will help students who have less interest in reading longer introductions."-Gale Reference for Students

"The book is a rich guide to the lives--each entry includes a brief biography--and work of both well-known (e.g., Elie Wiesel, Paul Celan, Leo Haas) and unfamiliar survivors....this welcome addition should be included in any collection supporting Holocaust studies."-Choice

..."this volume will be valuable to all who are researching the Holocaust. Its strength lies in the inclusion of materials not often found elsewhere. Even the most knowledgeable Holocaust educator may not be aware of some of the works that are represented here."-Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin

"Teachers, librarians, and students should find this an outstanding resource. It can be used for selecting materials, but just reading this book provides a look into the heart and soul of those who suffered and were persecuted at the hands of the Nazis. Highly Recommended. Starred Review."-The Book Report
