Recommended Reading: WWII/Holocaust

This is a list of the World War II books we own or have come across in our travels.   We are continually adding to this page.  If you’d like us to add a book, please e-mail us at warthroughgenerations AT gmail DOT com. Thanks!  (**We are constantly adding to this page**)

Most of these books are listed because World War II or the Holocaust is mentioned in the description.  Obviously, we haven’t read all of these, so if you read one and discover that World War II is not a primary or secondary theme, please e-mail us and let us know so we can take it off the list.  Thanks!
