Great news! The United States Holocaust Museum has told me that they’ve reviewed and approved Stolen Secrets for their museum shop. Since then, three more Holocaust museums have informed me that they are also considering my book. I am so happy, because I feel there is great synergy between the message of Stolen Secrets and the ambitions of the museums to reach teens.
As anyone who has read my author’s note will see, it’s very important to me that we keep the tragedy of the Holocaust, and history in general for that matter, as alive to kids as we can. My generation was touched by the many interviews and personal accounts of Holocaust victims in newspapers, radio shows, and on the Internet. But kids today will find less and less of that as firsthand witnesses of this horrendous tragedy pass on. Meanwhile, hate groups are only growing stronger and more active.
I believe that society has an obligation to make sure that teens understand the world before their birth to prevent history from repeating. I am so excited to partner up with these outstanding museums to progress our common vision!
