This is an amazing book. Holocaust is incredibly well done. My kids are a little young for it yet but I think it would make an amazing teaching tool for older kids. The pictures and stories are deeply poignant. This book brought tears to my eyes many times as I read. I was touched by the survivor's stories. There is a ton of information in Holocaust and I learned a lot.  I would most certainly recommend it to everyone- kids and adults alike.

Thanks so much to the folks at DK Canada for sending me a review copy of this book.
