Since opening its doors in April 1993, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has been visited by more than one and a half million people twice as many as museum officials originally expected. Through this book, the museum reaches beyond its walls to show children how the lives of innocent people throughout Europe were affected by the tragedy of the Holocaust. It draws on the museum's large collection of artifacts, photographs, maps, and taped oral and video histories of Holocaust survivors and other witnesses to teach young readers about this terrible period in history. In addition to the historical overview, sidebars tell the stories of more than twenty children who suffered or died during the Holocaust. This personal approach, coupled with the expertise and wealth of primary materials that the museum brings to the book, make Tell Them We Remember a thorough and lasting memorial to the Holocaust for parents and teachers to share with their children.
