Survivors of the Holocaust: True Stories of Six Extraordinary Children
The focus of this book is to tell the true stories of six extraordinary Jewish children who tried to escape the clutches of Nazi invaders during World War II. This book is unique because it is written like a comic book or graphic novel. The illustrations tell half of the story. I like the illustrations a lot. The illustrator, Zane Whittingham, made the Nazi soldiers very ugly to show how mean and cruel their behavior was. He used a lot of neutrals to give the book a sad and gloomy effect and warm colors (mostly red) to show violence without actually picturing any blood. The six stories are made up of three girls and three boys. Only one story is from the concentration camps, with the other five having various ways of surviving by fleeing or hiding. This book doesn’t have one author because all of the stories are true stories from the survivors. One interesting fact about the people in this book is that none of them knew each other before the war, but now they all live in the same city together. I love reading about WWII, but this book is not for very young or very sensitive readers.
