|Plot Summary of Hilde and Eli - Children of the Holocaust|
|"This book tells the stories of Hilde Rosenzweig and Eli Lax, two children growing up in Germany and Czechoslovakia respectively, and follows their early childhood while placing it in the historical context of the Nazi's rise to power. Both children are killed by the Nazis. Adler's text focuses on the children's history, and the history of the world surrounding them, and uses simple sentences. Karen Ritz's illustrations are in color, and graphic at times (both children's deaths). "
