Franklin Watts. Adult Non-Fiction, Children’s Non-Fiction. Paperback rrp $26.99

These companion titles, Auschwitz and Hiroshima, are books telling the stories of two of the world’s greatest horrors with images and text suitable for primary school children. Educating our children about the past may help the leaders of the future.

Both books contain straight-forward facts, presented without moral judgment as to right or wrong. With maps, original photos and personal accounts, these books expose children to some of the darkest moments of history in a manner that will educate and encourage them to evaluate what happened. They are an excellent educational resource demonstrating the awful consequences of two world-changing political decisions.

A must have on the shelf for any primary school library.
