Re: Holocaust.

Louise Murphy is the author and as soon as I read it I'll tell you what I think. I'm pretty sure it's going to be great though. It was under "Erica's Favorites" or something in Barnes and Noble. Erica works there I assume lol.

Re: Holocaust.

You need to read I Have Lived a Thousand Years. I think the author's name is Livia Bitton-Jackson. It is one of my faves. I'm also currently trying to write a book set during the holocaust. I have always been intrigued by the subject.

Re: Holocaust.

defnitely read devil's arithmetic. umm.. then there's the upstairs room (i think that's what it's called) and anne frank and me.  they're all technically fiction, but based off a lot of true facts from the holocaust, and that's what they're all about. hope that helped! =]

Re: Holocaust.

one book i think you should read is milkweed and the boy in the stripped pajamas . it is similar to anne frank. it is a really good book it talks about a holicaust as well. i really liked the boy in the sripped pajameas because a little boy that is not jewish becomes friends with a boy who is jewish because he did not care about his race. i also liked milkweed because it has a happy ending unlike the boy in the stripped pajamas.milkweed is interisting because a gypsy kid that once didint know anything about hymself not even that mothers excisted finds a friend that names him and cleans him and feeds him and turns out to be really nice. i think milkweed would be excellent if liked anne frank.
