Note to Educators

Due to the traumatic and often horrific nature of the authors’ experiences surviving the Holocaust, the books contain sensitive material, such as violence and sexual content. It is the policy of the Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program not to excise these passages; we maintain the integrity of the survivors’ accounts, editing only for clarity and editorial consistency.

Our books have been classified by age according to content and not by reading level. We strongly urge teachers to use their discretion and consult the mature content notice listed beside each book.
