1 Dwork, Deborah; Van Pelt, Robert Jan Flight from the Reich: Refugee Jews, 1933-1946

As war, persecution, and deportation savaged communities, Jews tried to flee through legal and clandestine routes. In their multifaceted tale of Jewish refugees during and after the Nazi era, the authors braid the private and public realms, personal memory and official history to elucidate a pattern and carry the reader vividly into the circumstances of the past. This book is grounded in research throughout Europe and America, oral histories, and thousands of newly discovered letters. Well illustrated, photographs are scattered throughout. Includes index and endnotes. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

2 Frantz, Douglas; Collins, Catherine Death on the Black Sea the Untold Story of the Struma and World War II's Holocaust At Sea
On the morning of February 24, 1942, on the Black Sea near Istanbul, an explosion ripped through a decrepit former cattle barge filled with Jewish refugees. One man clung fiercely to a piece of deck, fighting to survive. Nearly eight hundred others - among them, more than 100 children - perished. In this book its passengers, and the events that led to its destruction are investigated and fully revealed in two vivid, parallel accounts, set six decades apart. One chronicles the international diplomatic maneuvers and callousness that resulted in the largest maritime loss of civilian life during World War II. The other recounts a recent attempt to locate the Struma at the bottom of the Black Sea, an effort initiated and pursued by the grandson of two of the victims. A vivid recollection of a grim exodus aboard a doomed ship, Death on the Black Sea illuminates a forgotten episode of World War II and pays tribute to the heroes, past and present, who keep its memory alive. 353 pages including bibliography, sources, and a list of passengers who perished on the Struma. 5 1/4" x 8

3 Friedman, Henry; Berenbaum, Michael (Foreword by) I'M No Hero Journeys of a Holocaust Survivor
Henry Friedman was robbed of his adolescence by the monstrous evil that annihilated millions of European Jews and changed forever the lives of those who survived. When the Nazis overran their home town near the Polish-Ukrainian border, the Friedman family was saved by Ukrainian Christians who had worked at their farm. They were hidden in a loft over the animal stalls at a neighbor's farm; his father hid in another hayloft half a mile away. The family was liberated by the Russians after 18 months in hiding. Henry was 15. Like many other survivors, Henry Friedman has found it difficult to confront his past, but he has also felt the obligation to bear witness. Now retired, he devotes his much of his time to telling his story, a message of hope, to thousands of schoolchildren throughout the Pacific Northwest. 175 pages. 6" x 9 1/2

4 Friedrich, Otto The Kingdom of Auschwitz
I know of no work which brings the reality of this evil place so directly, vividly, accurately, movingly and clearly. It is quite simply the best short account ever produced. The origins and rationale of the camp; the part it played in overall Nazi plans; the way it was built, expanded and run; they key officials in its command structure; the daily lives of its guard and inmates; and most of all the terrifying logic and discipline which kept Auschwitz operating for the greater part of a long war - all of these aspects are related with admirable plainness and concision. For young people in particular, for whom the Holocaust is a mere history, this is a necessary eye-opener, and if they read nothing else about the subject, they should read this. " - Paul Johnson/ 112 pages with index and A Note on Sources. Includes a diagram of Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II - Birkenau and a map of primarily Poland, where these camps were located. Remainder mark at bottom. 5 1/4" x 8

Born Jewish: a Childhood in Occupied Europe, Liebman, Marcel; Rose, Jacqueline (Introduction by)
5 Liebman, Marcel; Rose, Jacqueline (Introduction by) Born Jewish: a Childhood in Occupied Europe
1844670392 / 9781844670390; The story Libman tells is of his family's struggle to survive in the face of persecution, terror, and constant evasion, is an existence observed with acuity, humor and lyricism. This memoir is the account of his childhood in Brussels under the Nazi occupation and explores the emergence of his class-consciousness against a background of resistance and collaboration. He documents the internal class war that has long been hidden from history - how the Nazi persecution exploited class distinctions within the Jewish community, and how certain Jewish notables collaborated in a systematic program of denunciation and deportation against immigrant Jews who lacked the privileges of wealth and citizenship. Includes four pages of advertising from Verso. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
