Summary
Much of what is known about people's everyday lives in times past comes from artifacts but also from diaries, letters, and other writings. Many important details of life during the Civil War, for instance, can be found in the diaries of women who carried on while their men were at war. In the Living History series, firsthand accounts such as these are combined with thoughtful narrative to offer a rich and vivid portrait of daily life in various times and places in history. A visual chronology, sidebars that feature quotes from people of the period and from historians, selected vocabulary words, source notes, a bibliography for further research, and an index provide additional tools for student researchers.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Rather than focus on a string of historical events, these titles in the Living History series highlight how citizens lived during key time periods. Complemented by maps, period photos, or reproductions of the time period, each book begins with a time line of important dates. Life in Nazi Germany gives a thorough overview of Hitler's rise to power and his effective use of propaganda to create an idealistic Aryan nation and disparage Jews through symbolism and the media. In addition to discussing Jewish life in German cities, it also examines the expectations of the Nazi police, German citizens as a whole, and children indoctrinated in Hitler Youth programs. Throughout the series, numerous primary-source documents and historians' perspectives add to the validity and interest. Living History delivers what it aims, providing students with a more complete look at history.--Leeper, Angela Copyright 2015 Booklist"
