THE NUMBER ON MY GRANDFATHER'S ARM -- Winner of the 1987 Sydney Taylor Award as the year's outstanding contribution to the field of Jewish literature for children
A HERO and the HOLOCAUST: The Story of Janusz Korczak and His Children -- Korczak was an author, radio personality, teacher and doctor. But above all else he was a hero. As the beloved doctor of a Jewish orphanage in Warsaw, Poland, during the years of the Nazi Party's rise to power, he cared for hundreds of children. They loved him as a father and affectionately called him their "Old Doctor." Korczak refused to save himself. Instead he stayed with his children to the very end.
