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?"
Night, Recommended by Nicole Osburn HMH Visitor Services Associate
“Wiesel’s memoir shares deeply intimate truths of a young man’s journey alongside his Father, inside Nazi Death Camps.  Night moved me beyond description.”
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.”
Painted in Words, Recommended by Marsha Hurwitz HMH Volunteer
"This book is a stunning memoir by the painter Samuel Bak, whose works are on display in our museum. The writing is rich and evocative and Bak really does paint imagery of both the mundane and horrific in vivid language. The reader will gain insight into the symbolism in his works as well as an appreciation for the luck and ingenuity that resulted in rescued lives."
