Perspectives on the Holocaust: An Annotated Bibliography of Personal Accounts Appropriate for the Young Adult Patron.
This annotated bibliography and filmography was compiled in the effort to respond to the need for teaching Holocaust literature and European history surrounding the Holocaust. Focusing on the personal narrative, this study takes a multimedia instructional approach, examining English-language materials of which librarians often have little knowledge. Published listings, publishers' catalogs, review periodicals, and online databases have been consulted, and items reviewed, in order to compile a useful bibliography that addresses the concerns of the young adult librarian. The bibliography limits its coverage of written works to those published between 1980 and 1991; however, films and videos were included regardless of their production dates. Consideration has been given to the literary or cinematic quality of a work as well as its ability to attract and hold the attention of young adults. Citations are presented under the following subject headings: Resources for Holocaust Study and Teaching (48 references); Collected Works (8 references); Escape (5 references); Hiding (5 references); Organized Resistance (2 references); Ghetto and Camp Existence (35 references); Being a Non-Jew in the Third Reich (4 references); Being a Half-Breed (2 references); and Filmography (8 references). A subject index concludes the document. (DB)
