I've been thinking about all the wonderful books about the Holocaust and how powerful they are. Some of my all time favorites fall in this category despite the heavy subject. Here's ten of them:
1. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
2. Night by Elie Wiesel
3. The Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank
4. The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom
5. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
6. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
7. The Endless Steppe by Esther Hautzig
8. Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay (this is one I have yet to read, but high up on the my list)
9. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
10. Virgil and Beatrice by Yann Martell: not because it's a favorite, but because it stands out as one of the strangest books and most shocking books I've ever read on this subject!
What are some of your favorites in this genre?
