There are lots of biographies and personal narratives, too, if you want some nonfiction.
Thanks for the recommendations Hope :)
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak won a zillion awards when it came out in 2005. It's been on the NY Times Children's Bestseller list ever since. (The book is classified as a YA novel, but it transcends the genre.) It's a wonderful story told in a unique voice - I definitely recommend checking it out!
I've already read this one and it's one of my favourite books :D
its not fiction and its not about helping jews per say, but Man Search for Meaning by Viktor E Frankl (particularly the first part) is about that time period. Frankl was a psychologist who was sent to Auschwitz. The first part is about his experiences, but from a different mentality than most of the books from a prisoners perspective. And Schindler's List is a fabulous movie. It was never a book, that I know of, but I felt the need to mention it(:i probably wasn't very happy, because I didn't fit any of you criteria. sorry.
I totally meant to say helpful instead of happy. I have no clue where 'happy' came from :/ sorry. haha.
Thanks for the recommendation :)
Schindler's List actually is based on a novel by Thomas Keneally. Sometimes it is called Schindler's Ark, sometimes Schindler's List.
Oh! Haha! I did not know that, I'll have to read that sometime. Is it as good as the movie?
Just about any book by Corrie Ten Boom. Not fiction though...
"Number the Stars" by Lois Lowry. A MUST READ.
I've read Lowry's other books so I'll take a look at this. Thanks!
Good. I think it is important. Also, "The DoveKeepers"-not about WWII but about when the Romans threw them out of their homeland.
A must-read for this topic would be the non-fiction: Lest Innocent Blood Be Shed by Phillip Hallie.
