History Books I rate: The Holocaust

Some of you might know I teach History at High School. I love finding good YA historical fiction which I can use in the classroom if only to recommend to my students as wider reading.

I do however find that I can be very critical of historical fiction and I do find myself having to give up on books others have raved about because I can't get over historical inaccuracies or stories where events are treated lightly.

This month I have a selection of books set in and around the holocaust. In the last week or so it was national holocaust memorial day for which I made this brief video of reading recommendations for Bookish Brits. I have included a selection of novels, graphic novels (both YA and adult) and non-fiction.
