This story is a gentle way to introduce children to one of the many tragedies of the Holocaust. An author's note at the end provides further details of what happened in Ponar Forest. Recommended for those stu [...]

This story was incredibly touching and sad, it honestly made me cry. I'm not sure a lot of children would understand the significance of the subject mat [...]


    5. Eli Remembers was a heart wrenching book about a young boy who questions why his grandparents are crying every year at their Jewish New Year gathering. It comes out in the end that his great-grandmothers father and brothers and sisters were murdered during the Holocaust and they took him to the burial site (where they were killed) and finally explained everything to him.
