Shattered Youth in Nazi Germany

Primary Sources From the Holocaust

Series: True Stories of Teens in the Holocaust

By Linda Jacobs Altman

Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party's rise to power in the 1930s changed life dramatically for all people living in Germany. Hitler used propaganda, fear, and brutality as his main weapons. Jewish children faced strong antiSemitism in their schools and on the street, and saw their families ripped apart. Non-Jewish children deemed "undesirable" suffered a similar fate. "Aryan" children were forced to enter Hitler Youth groups or endure humiliation. Told through the words of teenagers, author Linda Jacobs Altman uses primary sources to explore the destruction of childhood in Nazi Germany as the Holocaust took shape in Europe.

Reviews

"Many histories use primary sources but fail to do so effectively. These books succeed by integrating into their narratives lengthy quotes from Jewish and other teens whose lives were endangered or changed by the Nazi regime . . . Certain to capture readers' attention, these are excellent purchases."

School Library Journal, April 2010

"Photographs, lists of resources, and chapter notes make the information accessible and encourage further reading."

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2010

". . . Altman’s resource book gives readers a neutral, yet focused look into how Hitler affected the heart of Germany by decisively attacking its youth . . . Students ranging from ten and older will find this a valuable resource when exploring the complexities of the Holocaust."

Christian Library Journal, August 2010

". . . a solid series with a lot of eyewtiness accounts . . ."

The Jewish Valuesfinder

"For years Anne Frank’s diary has been the most compelling testimony of a young life destroyed. The recollections in this title are just as compelling."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, May 2010

". . . presents excerpts of firsthand accounts of youth living during the Holocaust, both Jews and non-Jews, intertwined into cohesive sections."
