Abstract

With the adoption of the New Jersey State Mandate for teaching Jewish Holocaust Education and other genocides, a curriculum was written for Aura School. To complete the project and make the literature easily accessible, an annotated bibliography of books related to Holocaust studies was constructed for the school to assist the student as well as the teaching staff.

After reviewing the curriculum from the State of New Jersey as well as the one written for Aura School, a compiling of recommended books from the school library was formulated. Subjects other than the Holocaust were referenced, such as: World War II, Physically and Mentally Handicapped, Multiculturalism and Friendship. If the book met the criteria for the state and school curriculum, it was eligible for inclusion in the annotated bibliography. The books were separated by grade level even though some can be used for a variety of age groups.
