The Holocaust Series started in the Quad Cities in 2003 with three women named Esther: Esther Avruch, Esther Katz, and Esther Schiff. Without them, there wouldn't be a book series inspiring young readers and young authors. 

 

This series includes stories of Holocaust survivors, soldiers who were eye-witnesses to the concentration camps, and Righteous Gentiles, non-Jews who risked their lives to help others. 

 

It's imperative that young people interview these subjects while we still can. The window of opportunity is closing quickly. Download the Operation Write Now poster here and share it with someone (a subject or a young author / illustrator) today.

 

Some of the books are available for purchase on Amazon. See the link below the picture description.
