"Because of its clarity and logical organization, this book is especially valuable for middle school students as a first examination of the topic. Even high school students would draw benefit from this text as it contains chapter notes, bibliography, and bibliographical annotations plus a thorough chronology and index. Recommended." The Book Report
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 6-12. This easy-to-read, concise look at the life and motivations of Hitler focuses primarily on the question, How, in a civilized world, was this allowed to happen? Although it's certainly not an original query, Heyes does a nice job of weaving the threads of Hitler's childhood, the rise of the Nazi Party, Germany's resentment against the Versailles Treaty and desperate economic conditions, and the rest of the world's preoccupation with internal affairs and unwillingness to endure another war into the fabric of the Holocaust. Her matter-of-fact presentation of the events of history placed in their political and social context will leave young readers with the clear message that we must be ever vigilant lest history repeat itself. Although all the material seems to come from readily available secondary sources, this will be more appealing to young adults than many of the lengthier works. An excellent starting point for discussion of, or research on, Hitler and the Holocaust. Includes notes, a reading list, and a helpful detailed chronology. ~--Jeanne Triner"
