MAUS I/MAUS II: A Survivor's Tale. By Art Spiegelman. With an
unusual comic book format, these somewhat controversial books
(winner of a special Pulizer Prize) disarm the reader's
preconceptions about the Holocaust, allowing fresh perspective to be
gained. The first tale and its sequel are autobiographical, with the
cartoonist depicting himself in the process of recording his
father's experiences from the Holocaust. His father's story of
survival is reenacted, unfolding gradually with an element of
suspense, with the Jews drawn as mice and the Nazis as cats. Through
vivid personal history, the cartoonist approaches a subject of
overwhelming proportions and includes the effect that momentous
events have had on the dynamics of his family. Grades 9 and up.

ONE, BY ONE, BY ONE. By Judith Miller. A thought-provoking work about
how the Holocaust has been remembered, rather than about the Holocaust
itself. Based on the conviction that societies become what the choose
to remember, the book chronicles how the shadow of the Holocaust has
affected the modern identities of Germany, Austria, the Netherlands,
France, the Soviet Union, and the United States. Focusing on such
events as the Barbie trial, the Walfheim controversy, and Reagan's
commemoration at the cemetery in Bitburg, the author explores how
people tend to rationalize painful episodes in history, how this
rationalization leads to lies, and how history's horrors are
forgotten. Advanced students. Index. Touchstone, 320 p. 1991 paperback

ORDINARY MEN: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in
Poland. By Christopher R. Browning. "If this Jewish business is ever
avenged on earth, then have mercy on us Germans." In early 1942,
four-fifths of Holocaust victims were alive. Eleven months later
four-fifths were dead. Examining a wave of mass murder centered in
Poland, this well-documented history follows the actions of one
killing unit composed of mostly middle-aged and middle-to-lower
class reserve policemen drawn from Hamburg. Based on interrogations
by West German prosecutors, this chilling firsthand doucmentary
considers how 500 ordinary men could calculatedly shoot 38,000 Jews
and send 45,000 more to the Treblinka gas chambers. Grades 7-12.

THE ABANDONMENT OF THE JEWS: America and the Holocaust 1941-1945. By
David S. Wyman. A provacative report on America's response to the Nazi
assault upon the Jews of Europe during WWII, one which the author
claims was woefully inadequate. Noting that scarcely 200,000 people
were saved, compared to the six million who perished, this
meticulously researched book documents the roles of Congress and
President Roosevelt, the effect of America's immigration quotas, fears
for jobs and economic security for returning U.S. veterans if America
opened her doors to refugees, and the rise of American anti-Semitism.

THE ALTRUISTIC PERSONALITY: Rescuers of Jews in Nazi Europe. By
Samuel P. Oliner and Pearl M. Oliner. Why, during the Holocaust, did
some ordinary people risk their lives and the lives of their
familiers to help others - even total strangers - while most stood
passively by? To answer this intriguing question, Samuel Oliner,
himself a Holocaust survivor, interviewed more than 700 European
rescuers and nonrescuers. The compelling accounts of participants as
well as bystanders reveal that rescuers were not lone heros but
shared aspects in common: many were distinguished by their
far-reaching attachments to others, by a sense of community
responsibility and universal concern, and by the belief that their
actions could make a difference. Grades 10 and up. Index. Free

THE LIBERATORS: Eyewitness Accounts of the Liberation of
Concentration Camps. edited by Yalfa Eliach and Brana Gurewitsch.
Recent oral history testimonies by American liberators describe
their initial responses to the concentration camps in 1945. History
is brought to life by the immediacy of these first-person accounts
by infantrymen, officers, a female war correspondent, medical corps
members, and a black combat soldier, then 19 years old. No matter
what their age, rank, sex, or color, they shared common reactions of
disbelief, repulsion, pity, and very often, shocked silence. No
longer silent, these 19 witnesses provide irrefutable documentation
of the camps. Many of the accompanying photographs were shot by the
liberators themselves; others are official US Army documents. 9x12".

Robert Jay Lifton. From the forced sterilization policies and
euthanasia programs early in the National Socialist era, to the
evolution of the death camps, this book documents how people trained
in the art of healing became instrumental in the development of
institutionalized murder. In interviews with doctors working in Nazi
Germany, the author describes how the process of "doubling" -

murder, the other part seeing itself as "humane healer" - worked to
turn ordinary people into executioners and hospitals into death
rows. Advanced students. Basic Books, 561 p.

YOUNG PEOPLE SPEAK: Surviving the Holocaust in Hungary. Edited by
Andrew Handler and Susan V. Meschel. Eleven men and women who
survived the Holocaust as children in Hungary - which saw more than
three-quarters of its Jewish population perish in less than one
year - bear witness to their experiences in this eloquent and moving
book. For these individuals, childhood concerns like looking forward
to a birthday, swimming in a pond, and playing in the school yard,
were suddenly supplanted by the need for false identities, by
paralyzing fear, narrow escapes, and the loss of home and family.
Includes a list of resources for further reading. Grades 7-12.
Index. Illustrated with photos of the contributors as children.
Watts. 160 p. Copyright 1993.

Editor's note: Many of the books noted in this series are worthwhile
additions to the libraries of anyone concerned about Holocaust denial.
Copies may be ordered from any bookstore, but internet users may wish
to avail themselves of the services of the internet bookstore,
Bookstacks, Unlimited, which may be reached through the internet by
using the command "telnet"

Once you've gone through the brief login procedure, you can search the
stacks in a variety of ways, and order books on the spot.  I have
found this service faster than my local bookstores, which is saying
something, since I live in Canada, and I recommend it as a primary
source for Holocaust-related books.  DISCLAIMER: I have no financial
or other association with the company, or anyone employed there.
