From 1938 to 1945, the Nazi regime of Germany hunted down, imprisoned, and killed millions of European Jews but was especially aggressive toward Jewish children. To survive, children evaded the murderous Nazis by disguising their identity, hiding in secret places, or living on the run. After the Holocaust, many Jewish children faced the future as orphans.

Each volume in this series begins with the same two-page timeline. A brief introduction discusses the main issue, followed by chapters which elaborate various aspects. Each chapter has several images, making for a quick read. The images are repeated in other volumes. Quotations are often from secondary or tertiary sources. The series is thought-provoking and gripping, particularly the volumes dealing with children, resistance, the camps, and survivors. These are attractive books that are easy-to-read and hard to put down. The series is a valuable reference source as well.Bibliography. Index.
