Holocaust Memoirs and Dairies
Recommended Reading Lists
The list of Holocaust memoirs and dairies that have been published is extensive, and picking out just a handful to recommend was a difficult task. We would have like to list all our recommendations in this category, but we choose to limit the list to keep the list manageable. Therefore, you are likely to notice that there are many outstanding and historically significant Holocaust memoirs and diaries that have not been listed here. We regret their absence, and would suggest that you visit Amazon.com for an extensive list of available Holocaust memoirs and Holocaust related diaries.
