Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, a time for commemoration and education. It is important to introduce children gently to the importance and significance of the Holocaust. Picture books that tell about events and real people with thoughtful stories help make difficult concepts more accessible. Many of our books have companion reading guides, which have questions for contemplation and ideas for deeper learning.
