Poll: Holocaust Novels *Completed*

As the years pass, Holocaust novels are in abundance now more than ever.

What are your recommendations? Take the poll to the right of this post and comment below to include links to the reviews on your own blogs and websites! If you have additional recommendations, feel free to post those as well.

It's hard for me to pinpoint just one novel, but I'm going to choose Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum. Jenna Blum is of German and Jewish descent and spent four years interviewing Holocaust victims.

Here are links to my reviews on each novel:

Review -- Those Who Save Us
Review -- Skeletons at the Feast
Review -- The Book Thief
Review -- The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

We received the most votes for The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Add it to your wish list if you haven't already!


  1. I've read quite a few books related to the Holocaust. They're rather hard to find at my library.

    The ones I can recommend are:

    Kanada - Eva Wiseman
    The Cage - Ruth Minsky Sender
    Yellow Star - Jennifer Rozines Roy

    I really liked The Cage though. That one was the best of the three, I think.

  2. Wow...I have NEVER heard of those! They went on my wish list though :)

  3. There are many wonderful books. If you want a real tearjerker you can read Sarah's Key. I haven't published a review yet, I'll see if I can next week.


Thanks for stopping by - can't wait to see what you have to say!
