Review: Thank you for sharing the story that was not told for many years. The sacrifices made by people fighting human atrocities should be honored and remembered.

Review: Presently I’m teaching English Language Arts in sixth grade which is for students who are 11 and 12 years old, this is published by Scholastic and is marketed to children age 12 and older. This is an adaptation of a book written for adults called The Volunteer. There are 248 pages of text and after that is an appendix and the bibliography. I feel that the reading level, length of paragraphs, and vocabulary is too difficult for 12 year olds. In the last two years I have taught seventh and eighth grade and for my students this would still be too difficult to comprehend, also due to requiring much more background knowledge to understand the meaning. The story’s pacing is slow compared to what today’s youth are used to reading and consuming in video format in their lives in 2021... if a book isn’t catching their interest, if they feel that is intimidating, if they don’t understand some of the vocabulary words, and if they lack the background knowledge to understand the gist, this is a recipe for giving up on reading the book, sadly. This spring I will be teaching about The Holocaust to my sixth graders and I was hoping to use this book in my class in some manner. I was unfamiliar with the story, this is a true story of a Polish underground operative who went to Auschwitz to gather information to be used against the Nazis for war crime evidence. I think this is an important book but good and engaged cooperative readers in high school seems to me to be a better reading ability level. I am supportive of any book that seeks to educate today’s children about the Holocaust and genocide and will rate this 4 stars as an important book but was tempted toward a 3 as I’d like to think the adaptation could have been written differently to grab and hold a 12 year old’s interest and to then educate and inform them.

    Description: While in a Russian-administered holding camp in Katowice, Poland, in 1945, Primo Levi was asked to provide a report on living conditions in Auschwitz. Published the following year, it was subsequently forgotten and remained unknown to a wider public. Dating from the weeks and months immediately after the war, Auschwitz Report details the authors' harrowing deportation to Auschwitz, and how those who disembarked from the train were selected for work or extermination. As well as being a searing narrative of everyday life in the camp, and the organization and working of the gas chambers, it constitutes Levi's first lucid attempts to come to terms with the raw horror of events that would drive him to create some of the greatest works of twentieth-century literature and testimony. Auschwitz Report is a major literary and historical discovery.

    Description: When Hitler announced that the result of the war in Europe would be 'the complete annihilation of the Jews', he did so in 1942, not only in public, but before an enormous crowd in Berlin. The Allies heard, but, astonishingly, they did not listen. In 1944, Allied reconnaissance pilots, searching out industrial targets in the area, repeatedly photographed Auschwitz. The pictures, apparently overlooked by the Allies, were routinely filed in government archives and not examined until 1979. First-hand reports on the horrors of the death camps came to the West by 1944 in the person of two escaped Auschwitz prisoners. Their testimonies, and those of subsequent escapees, were either ignored or dismissed. Despite the fact that, the same year, Churchill himself had ordered feasibility studies for air strikes on Auschwitz, the RAF not only did nothing, but eventually passed the buck to the Americans, who also did nothing. This book explains the reasons why. Vintage Auschwitz And The Allies - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk
