The Book Smugglers, Recommended by Nathan Arredondo HMH Visitor Services Supervisor
"The Book Smugglers is a harrowing tale of the lengths some people would go to, to protect precious books and documents from the Nazi's and Soviets. The journey of the Paper Brigade is one of true heroism because they knew if caught, they could face certain doom. The Book Smugglers really does make you wonder, would you risk your life to save a book?"
Denial: Holocaust History On Trial, Recommended by Casandra Martinez HMH Intern
“A deeply intriguing book, Denial documents Lipstadt’s legal battle, and ultimate victory, against Holocaust denier and faux historian David Irving. This moving, real story shows that Holocaust history is a living being that must be actively protected against the spread of ignorance and antisemitism today.”
Auschwitz: A Doctor's Eyewitness Account, Recommended by Nick Zizinia HMH Volunteer
"While all literature examining the Holocaust approaches the horrifying events from unique historical perspectives, memoirs such as “Auschwitz: A Doctor’s Eyewitness Account” by Dr. Miklos Nyiszli present an especially visceral description of the barbarity enacted upon Jewish men, women, and children. By providing a glimpse into the unimaginable terrors that he and his fellow prisoners faced in the Auschwitz Concentration Camp, Nyiszli undoubtedly contributes a brutal yet necessary addition to the field of Holocaust History."
Why? Explaining The Holocaust, Recommended by Nancy Wiginton HMH Volunteer
"Why? Explaining the Holocaust by Peter Hayes, provides a thorough and fully comprehensive examination of the numerous and inter-woven events that led to the Holocaust. The author also proficiently examines the lessons learned and legacies of these events. This book is thought provoking and gave me many points to consider and ponder for days after I finished reading it."
