Tapestry of Hope is an extraordinary anthology of writing about the Holocaust for young people. Irene N. Watts and Lillian Boraks-Nemetz have gathered well-known published writing and new first-person accounts, to reveal the heartbreak, courage, and hope that define one of history’s darkest hours.

The editors present writing about hiding from the Nazis, life in the ghetto, resistance, the camps, escape, survival, and life after the Holocaust. Selections include poetry, prose, and first-hand accounts such as Andre Stein’s Hidden Children, Jack Kuper’s Child of the Holocaust, Jason Shermon’s A Blessing in Disguise, Kathy Kacer’s Gaby’s Dresser, Eva Wiseman’s My Canary Yellow Star, Leonard Cohen’s All There is to Know about Adolph Eichmann, Jean Little writing about Anne Frank, Karen Levine’s Hannah’s Suitcase, and many others.

Praise

Praise

Tapestry of Hope is an important reference work for teachers of the Holocaust in secondary schools and colleges…this anthology is a complex answer to the often-asked question: Why did so many survivors of the Holocaust wait so long before telling their stories?”
The Globe and Mail

“…a timely addition to Holocaust resources.”
Quill & Quire

“…very useful in a classroom situation when teaching about the Holocaust because a teacher has a large number of excerpts from which to choose… Tapestry of Hope has good educational value for both a history and a language arts program. Highly Recommended.”
