Description of this Book

What would your life be like if you were a Jewish person living in Nazi Germany in 1940? You might be forced to leave your home with only what you and your family could carry. You might even be killed by members of the Nazi party. The Holocaust is a grim period in human history. More than 11 million people, including 6 million Jewish people, died at the hands of the Nazis. In The Holocaust: Racism and Genocide in World War II, readers ages 12 to 15 learn about the long history of anti-Semitism, the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party, the increasing persecution of Jewish people and other populations, and the events of The Final Solution, the attempt to exterminate an entire race of people through industrialized death camps. Projects such as writing letters in the voices of teenagers of different races who lived in the 1930s help infuse the content with realism and the eternal capacity for hope. In-depth investigations of primary sources from the period allow readers to engage in further, independent study of the times. Additional materials include links to online primary sources, a glossary, a list of current reference works, and Internet resources.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Praise for other books by Carla Mooney <i>Chemistry: Investigate the Matter that Makes Up Your World</i><i>School Library Connection</i>. . . This is a unique reference resource for upper elementary through high school students that want to learn more about the subject. Recommended. <i>School Library Journal</i> This title introduces readers to the wonders of chemistry and its far-reaching effects on our lives, from the carbonation in soda to nuclear reactions. The experiments provided will inspire and encourage further discovery of the world of science. <i>National Science Teachers Association</i> <i>Chemistry</i>is a short but sweet book that packs a powerful punch of learning about matter on every page. <i>Comparative Religion: Investigate the World Through Religious Tradition</i><i>Booklist</i> The abstractions of religion make it a tricky topic for objective and clear middle-level resources, but this dynamic book manages to be both informative and accessible. By examining complex beliefs and doctrine in an accessible and reader-friendly format, Mooney effectively teases out the commonalities among major world religions. <i>Genetics: Breaking the Code of Your DNA</i>National Science Teachers Association. . . The book is written to the reader and I would use this book for a supplement if required to use a textbook. If I was not required to use a textbook, I would use this book for secondary classes. This book would be good to use with students that struggle with reading and content. <i>Forensics: Uncover the Science and Technology of Crime Scene Investigation</i> Winner 2013 Silver Moonbeam Children's Book AwardWinner 2013 Society of School Librarians International Honor Book Award <i>Booklist</i> Like other titles in the Inquire and Investigate series, this book focuses on a high-interest topic in a cutting-edge field to reinforce young people s understanding of the scientific method . . . an appealing and age-appropriate STEM resource. <i>Bookloons</i> Carla Mooney's approach to this topic is to bring together hands-on investigation with history, science and technology as the young detectives discover how to carefully collect evidence and perform their own crime lab analysis. . . . this book will not only engage the reader but also make the young person want to know more about the subject. Other books in the series: <i>The Roaring Twenties: Discover the Era of Prohibition, Flappers, and Jazz</i><i>Library Media Connection</i> This engaging and insightful read into the 1920s can be used as a supplementary textbook in an American History class. Lusted s writing captures the decade, offering all its vitality with an encompassing overview of the era. As the narration gains its footing, the text flows seamlessly . . . a valuable addition to a library looking to update its history collection. <b>Recommended</b> <i>Bookloons</i> . . . This is an excellent resource for teachers and parents who are home schooling. Use this book to introduce the era and then expand the topic with more focused study on areas of interest. The resource section at the back of the book will be very helpful. Anne Shaw, Director, 21st Century Schools The author has provided astounding connections between the 1920s and the 21st century. Nomad Press is one of the very best resources available to teachers for creating truly spectacular learning experiences for their students. <i>Music: Investigate the Evolution of American Sound</i><i>School Library Journal</i> This overview is a STEAM advocate's delight. . . . an admirable synopsis of the multicultural history of American music.
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
