Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Reviewed with Linda Jacobs Altman's Impact of the Holocaust0 . Gr. 5-10. Like Altman's Forgotten Victims of the Holocaust 0 (2003) and other books in the accessible Holocaust in History series, these titles cover the facts without sensationalism and raise important issues about evil and human rights for class discussion. Crimes 0 focuses on the end of World War II and the Nuremberg trials as well as cases of such war criminals as Adolf Eichmann. Eyewitness accounts and archival photos on every double-page spread document horrific crimes, including doctors' brutal experiments on prisoners. That excuse "I was just following orders" raises elemental questions about personal responsibility. Impact0 discusses the influence the Holocaust had on the quest for a Jewish homeland and the creation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The focus is always on the idea that ordinary people committed the evil. Primo Levi's name is misspelled, but otherwise the documentation is excellent. --Hazel Rochman Copyright 2004 Booklist"
