Youth Destroyed—The Nazi Camps

Primary Sources From the Holocaust

Series: True Stories of Teens in the Holocaust

By Ann Byers

Alice Lok was deported to Auschwitz, a Nazi death camp, in 1944. Upon her arrival, she faced a "selection." Alice had to stand in line as a Nazi doctor examined the new camp inmates. If the doctor pointed one direction, it meant hard labor—but labor meant life. If the doctor pointed the other way, that meant immediate death. Alice was lucky. She survived Auschwitz and two other camps. However, millions of Jews were not so lucky. There were six Nazi death camps in operation during World War II and thousands of other work and prison camps. Author Ann Byers details the stories of young people who were forced to live in Nazi camps during the Holocaust.

"The authentic tales from diaries for first-hand knowledge do not mince words . . . Highly recommended for those libraries where the Holocaust is studied."

Denton Independent School District, April 6, 2011

"What makes this book unique is the plethora of voices presented--all from youths and teens."

Children's Literature

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

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2010

"Students will be fascinated."

Delaware County Library System, August 20, 2010

". . . a superb resource . . . This is perfect for any student who needs help to use primary sources in a paper or presentation."

South Sound Book Review Council, January 26, 2011

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

The Jewish Valuesfinder

". . . these narratives so successfully incorporate the primary source material that they make the information and the narrative horrifyingly real . . . an excellent addition to Holocaust collections."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, May 2010

"Using haunting true and personal stories, Enslow has published a terrific set of books on teens living and surviving the Holocaust . . . The material presented is horrifyingly real, putting the reader in the middle of the events witnessed by the Holocaust survivors . . . Eighth grade teachers and high schools who teach the Holocaust will use these books and clamor for more of the same. Excellent reads for general knowledge as well."

Association of Region XI School Libraries

"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."
