If you are planning to introduce the Holocaust to children, picture books make a good beginning. The most comforting books are those that hold some kind of hope. This book is an allegory of the holocaust, where a small questioning rabbit witnesses one animal after another being taken from his peaceful forest.
Bunting, E., & Gammell, S. (1989).
Terrible Things: An allegory of the Holocaust.
Philadelphia: Jewish Publication Society.
In Germany they first came for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me —
and by that time no one was left to speak up.
