Product Description

Why, Zaida? is a beautiful, poignant story about a young boy who questions his grandfather about the Holocaust. The questions he asks are both thoughtful and thought-provoking, and the imagery is both sweet and sad. This illustrated book answers the question that most Holocaust survivors have difficulty answering--Why? Alvin Abram, the author, shows a talent for revealing the affects of the Holocaust in a humanistic, emotional manner. It is sad, though, that the questions needs to be asked at all. Why, Zaida? is a must-read for all children!

This is an amazing way to introduce primary/junior students to the Holocaust. As an education director for a synagogue, I use it as one of our official class texts for Grades 1-4.
