Keith Schoch, in a post on his Teach with Picture Books blog, lists a number of very good picture books on Holocaust themes. These picture books will allow a teacher to prepare elementary students with just enough age-appropriate foundational knowledge to understand the social and historical context of a Holocaust novel. Schoch feels that each of these texts will provide a concise, emotionally powerful account of this important human story that dignifies and honors all who were involved.

The post contains an annotated listing of Holocaust picture books and novels along with teaching suggestions and activities for elementary school classes.
