message 1: by Caroline (new)

Caroline Number the Stars is a powerful young adult story of the holocaust.


message 2: by Caroline (new)

Caroline The Devil's Arithmetic would also be high of my list of young adult holocaust works.


message 3: by ★ Jess (new)

★ Jess ONCE and THEN by Moris Glietzman.
Aboloutley exceptional.

Once by Morris Gleitzman


message 4: by Riv (new)

Riv Love this list. It's a real help with a Holocaust assignment I have to do. Thanks for making the list.


message 5: by Deirdre (new)

Deirdre Anne Holm's "I am David" is an awesome book -- but it's not about WWII. Granted, the Gulags were in operation at that time, but this novel is set later. Italy is part of the free world when David goes wandering through it. I believe the time period is the 1950s.

So -- it's an amazing account of life in a prison camp, but not a WWII novel. So I'm not sure it should be on this list -- though it certainly deserves to be on a list of excellent historical novels.


message 6: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl And Catch-22 is not YA, removed.


message 7: by Ashani (new)

Ashani  Hettige Wow good list to catch up Holocaust readings.. One of my reading interests.
Thank you!


message 8: by Kate (new)

Kate Removed Diary of a Young Girl. It is not a novel, it is Anne Frank's real diary.


message 9: by Ann (new)

Ann Rose Under Fire would be my first on this list!


message 11: by Emma (new)

Emma Just finished Hidden Gold. Excellent YA read, focuses on the strength of love and loyalty rather than the despair of torture and loss.


message 12: by Pink (new)

Pink Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is not YA


message 13: by Mary (new)

I agree!


Ashley *Hufflepuff Kitten* The Kane Chronicles trilogy by Rick Riordan doesn't belong here either.


message 15: by Booklovinglady (last edited Sep 03, 2016 08:55AM) (new)

Booklovinglady I personally wouldn't consider Small Island (#85) a 'teen' novel. I noticed two other titles I've read on this list, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (#13) and The Postmistress (#44), neither of which I would consider 'teen' novels either. Must be me though, as others do seem to think of them as teen novels.

By the way, The Diary of a Young Girl (#7) is definitely not a novel.

Title and description of this Listopia clearly say:
"YA Holocaust & WWII Novels
Teen
books about the Holocaust and World War II"

but judging from the titles on this list I'm guessing this is all open to interpretation...


message 16: by Emu (new)

Emu How is The Red Pyramid a holocaust novel?
