Voices From the Death Camp

Series: The Holocaust Through Primary Sources

By James Deem

“Yet, my little Diary, I don’t want to die, I still want to live . . . “ Éva Heyman, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl, wrote these words in her last diary entry in the spring of 1944. Soon after, she was deported and murdered at Auschwitz. During the Holocaust, the Nazis murdered more than one million people at Auschwitz. The largest of all the Nazi camps, Auschwitz was both a death camp and a forced labor camp. Author James M. Deem examines this place of unspeakable horror from the perspective of those who experienced it, from the construction of the camp to its final days.

BookLinx Book Evaluation Program

"The Holocaust Through Primary Sources series is a must have for any library that wants to offer a set of books that deals with the Holocaust that offers first hand accounts and photos of what happened to this dying people."

Southern Maine Library District, November 14, 2012

"Historical information about the formation of Auschwitz and the ideas behind its creation giving the reader an understanding of the extent of the Nazi’s hatred of all who were not Aryan. Each account, although brief, presents a reality only first hand experiences could convey . . . The pictures and true stories bring an added reality and dimension of the emotional and personal trials of many who survived and others who did not."

Richardson Independent School District, February 22, 2013

Infolink Book Evaluation Program, March 22, 2012

"The narrative, which is nonjudgmental and non-sensationalized, includes true accounts from prisoners of the camp . . . What sets Auschwitz by Deem apart from other titles is the view it provides in looking at this unspeakable horror through the eyes of survivors who had to watch those around them suffer and perish."

Christian Library Journal, February/April 2012

". . . a very useful source for research, and compelling reading for anyone interested in resistance movements and World War II and Holocaust history."

Delaware County Library System, January 2012

"This approach and format is much more extensive and personal than most Holocaust books for this age group, and will appeal to those who crave more depth and understanding."

Denver Public Schools, December 12, 2011

"The book is both exceptionally well written and exciting. The book is remarkably nonjudgmental, nonsensationalized, and compassionately objective in its presentation of information . . . This is a very well written book that will relate to many young readers."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, November 2011

"The format of telling the stories of the people makes it interesting and hard to put down."

Association of Region XI School Libraries

". . . these titles illuminate events by quoting at length from personal narratives, which are set apart from the main texts as sidebars. Readers will gravitate to this approachable focus, and teachers may appreciate the way that quotes from primary sources are integrated into simple texts."

School Library Journal, Fall 2011

". . . a great asset to a library collection . . ."

Southwest Ohio and Neighboring Libraries, October 3, 2011

"This new series packs an emotional punch as it disseminates historical facts from multiple perspectives . . . These unique perspectives lend an authenticity and immediacy to these stories that can rarely be achieved through traditional nonfiction."
