Gr 6-10-Holocaust Heroes is an on-target, accurate overview of the men and women who risked their lives to save thousands of Jews. Among the stories recounted are those of Kate Rossi, a teenage French Resistance worker who guided refugees to safety; Marian Pritchard, who shot the Dutch policeman who came searching for her charges; the Committee for the Defense of the Jews in Belgium, which saved more than 3000 children; and Raoul Wallenberg, who rescued Hungarian Jews. Survivors gives eyewitness accounts of the lives of concentration camp victims after liberation. The physical and psychological effects of the war, the search for family members, and beginning a new life are all discussed. Trials of major Nazi leaders at Nuremberg are also examined as is America's use of Nazi scientists during the perceived forthcoming fight against Communism. The creation of Israel and the importance of teaching about the Holocaust are both covered intelligently. Two clear and objective titles.-Marcia W. Posner, Holocaust Memorial and Educational Center of Nassau County, Glen Cove, NY
