Holocaust Resources for Children: Home

Welcome!

Welcome!

This represents one person's attempt at gathering resources and literature of the Holocaust in one place...especially resources for children, who will now have to rely on the written word to always remember.  Each book is reviewed.   When available, teacher's resources to accompany each book are included.

If you would like to add any resources that I have overlooked, please feel free to email me at dfluharty@uwf.edu and I will add it to the guide.

Poetry

Holocaust

by Barbara Sonek

We played, we laughed

we were loved.

We were ripped from the arms of our

parents and thrown into the fire.

We were nothing more than children.

We had a future. We were going to be

lawyers, rabbis, wives, teachers, mothers.

We had dreams, then we had no hope.

We were taken away in the dead of night

like cattle in cars, no air to breathe

smothering, crying, starving, dying.

Separated from the world to be no more.

From the ashes, hear our plea. This

atrocity to mankind can not happen

again. Remember us, for we were the

children whose dreams and lives were

stolen away.
