Beyond Courage

Rappaport, Doreen. Beyond Courage: The Untold Story of Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust. Candlewick, 2012.

This book is an excellent collection of stories of various groups of people who resisted the Nazi regime during the second world war.  There are quite a few photographs in this book, but not the typical Holocaust pictures that some of us may have become immune to. Also, the information in this book is tragic, but not graphic, so it is suitable for teens and tweens both. I would want this book in my classroom, were I still teaching.
