I am a huge Holocaust buff.  Does anyone have any recommendations for Kindle books they have read on this subject?  I am mostly looking for personal account type books (on either side german or jewish).  But if you have suggestions for other types I would be interested in those as well.  Thanks!

P.S. On a side note, I'm loving these boards!  Why oh why didn't I come on here sooner!?

Have you read The Book Thief? It's a Young Adult book, but it's REALLY good. I couldn't put it down and have bought 3 copies to give as gifts. I also bought one I could loan out.

I've also been told The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is also very good, but I haven't read it yet (another YA book).

Not sure if these are what you're looking for though..

I haven't read either of those, but they look good. I downloaded the sample. Thanks!

My book club seems to be on a Holocaust kick.  These are fiction, but we read The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and are currently reading Sarah's Key.  Sarah's Key was a bit tough for me to get into, but now I'm fascinated and want to know more.  It's set in Paris, which isn't a city normally associated with the Holocaust.  Based on what I've read, I highly recommend it.

I enjoy books on the Holocaust too. I'll be downloading samples of many of the books mentioned in this thread. One I just finished on Monday that I did not see mentioned here is Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum. Excellent and thought provoking novel.

Thanks for posting, I also enjoy these books. Please go by the Intro/Welcome Board and make an intro. Welcome to KB! :)

I love the book Stones from the River by Ursula Hegi and The True Story of Hansel and Gretel by Louise Murphy. However, neither of them are on the kindle but I totally reccomend both of them, especially the True Story of Hansel and Gretel.

I also have always been fascinated by stories of the Holocaust. One of my favorite books as a Kid was Lois Lowry's Number the Stars, which is another really great Holocaust story. But it's also not on the kindle. :/ what gives?!

The author of this book was interviewed on TV the other night:



I downloaded the sample as I was watching the interview -- love downloading samples on the fly like that! I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but the book seemed relevant to this thread so I am posting it here.

Here's a link to the video of the interview, for anyone who might want to watch it:
