Considering the recent events here in the United States, I felt like I should take this Back to School freebie week on Top Ten Tuesday to put forth some books about the Holocaust (both novels and nonfiction) I feel should be required reading for everyone. High schoolers, college students, new adults, older adults – everyone who is old enough to understand the atrocities that occurred when one man led a campaign to rid the world of anyone he deemed ‘inferior’. In recognizing the red flags that preceded this horrible blight on history, may we prevent it from ever happening again.
For younger readers:
And my favorite – and possibly the most important – nonfiction book about the Holocaust:
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” ~ George Santayana
