In this graphic novel about the Holocaust, a Jewish grandmother recounts to her grandson how she escaped from the Nazis and survived. With her grandson's help, she plunges into a search to discover what happened to the rest of her family during their last months at Auschwitz. The Search is a compilation of many stories of Jewish families who experienced the horror of the Holocaust. While the illustrations are not explicit, the narration is fairly specific about the horrors the characters experience.
Please note: There is an instance of language on page 25 of The Search. While it will not be new to many middle-school students, parents with young readers may want to hit it with a touch of white-out.
