Dear Rabbi or Educator,
JPS recently published two new important Holocaust-related books -- perfect for Yom HaShaoh on April 16. Please consider these titles for yourself and share this information with your teachers, librarians and other colleagues.
For young children,
Grandpa’s Third Drawer: Unlocking Holocaust Memories, was first published in Israel, where its award-winning Hebrew edition is used widely by teachers on Yom HaShoah. It is a story of a loving relationship between a silent grandfather and his curious grandson.
A free teacher’s guide is available.
Terrible Things: An Allegory of the
Holocaust, also for young children, is an award winning first book on the Holocaust that is used in hundreds of school districts around the country.
For adults and teens, Hatemail: Anti-Semitism on Picture Postcards features over 250 postcards, largely from the pre-Holocaust era, that show how hateful messages were widely distributed much like social media is sometimes used today. Hatemail
is a National Jewish Book Award Finalist.
Details about these and many other Holocaust-related books can be found below. Save 30% using the promo code 6HRD5.
