I‘m guessing the banning of books in schools will make kids not only aware of these books, it will make them want to read these books. #NeverForget

JamieArc I had to read this for French class in college. It started my interest in graphic novels. Here‘s hoping Maus finds its way into even more hands and minds now! 12mo
DrexEdit I saw on Wil Wheaton's facebook page this morning a very nice thing. He's encouraging his followers to buy a set of these books for one of the 12 or so comic book shops in the McMinn Co. area for the shops to give for free to anyone asking. He was personally going to buy 2 sets for every shop. I thought that was a very nice and positive way to address this. Because I agree, more people will be aware of and want to read these books now! 12mo
AmyG @DrexEdit That is awesome. I have read about other people buying them to distribute. @JamieArc I bet these find their way into the hands of people who never heard of them before. They were my first graphic novels, too. 12mo

sarahbarnes I read them in college too and still have my copies. My 13yo daughter recently got interested in them. ❤️ 12mo
AmyG @sarahbarnes Our kids need to learn about this. If they can do shooter drills in school, they can learn about the Holicaust. 12mo
lynneamch That is fantastic @DrexEdit I hadn't heard about the Wil Wheaton idea and I live in the next county over. Here's one aspect that blew me away: the "female nudity" that was found objectionable was actually a mouse. 12mo
Chrissyreadit @DrexEdit I‘m glad to hear what Wil Wheaton did. 12mo
bthegood I bought a copy a few months ago , unaware of all the controversy, from a used book store - 🙂 (edited) 12mo

I found this book languishing in a neighborhood #LittleFreeLibrary. Day after day, no one picked it out to read. It‘s a small book, one woman‘s memoirs of her time at #Auschwitz. Everyone‘s story deserves to be heard so I brought this book home. I‘m reading it now, concurrently with quite a few other books.

Cinfhen #NeverForget 💜I love that you brought this book home to read 1y
SqueakyChu @Cinfhen It sort of called out to me. The mother of the author died immediately after arriving at Auschwitz. I was shocked to learn her name was Teresa Katz (my middle name and my maiden surname). I was named after my maternal grandmother Teresa who also perished in Auschwitz. It‘s all very sad and eerie. (edited) 1y
SqueakyChu This book literally just gave me chills. I‘ve never had that happen to me before. It happened when I read about what happened to the author‘s brother after the war. 1y

SqueakyChu I see this book has been recommended by Elie Wiesel, no longer alive, but still a hero of mine. 1y
Cinfhen I literally got goosebumps after reading your comments!! YOU were 💯 meant to pick up THIS book!!!! Your grandmother was DEFINITELY sending you #LoveFromAbove 1y
SqueakyChu @Cinfhen I hope so! 1y

This was a very emotional read. I listened to the #audiobook for most of this book. I had started #reading it at first. The oral accounts were so powerful I felt as if I were there witnessing for the fist time. #librarybook #September11 #neverforget

I‘ll just recommend this oral history on this day every year for the rest of my life. You‘ll cry like a baby, but it‘s the most readable, moving, important book in all of the land about September 11, 2001. You should read it or listen to it or just have it on your nightstand. It. Is. Everything. #september11 #neverforget #neverstoplearning

MallenNC Agree 100%. I‘m reading it now and have already recommended it multiple times. 1y
Lesanne It was simply amazing as an audiobook! 1y
Lovesbooks87 I listened to the audiobook the last couple of days. A hard listen. I have also been watching the documentary on Hulu. 1y

Welles Crowther was a true American hero! He lost his life while trying to save others. I listened to the audio book and then watched the documentary. I highly recommend both of them.

Given the time of year, and the amount of time that has passed, it‘s only right that I pause to remember. And that I take a moment to revisit this book: the best I‘ve read about the tragedy of 9/11. #NeverForget #20YearsOn #LessonsLearned?

Suet624 This was an amazing audiobook. They include audio from a wide variety of people, including the calls from the airplanes. 1y
FashionableObserver @Suet624 Really?! I may have to borrow that from the library! Such a heartbreaking story. But so important to remember. 1y
Suet624 Yes, I completely agree. 1y
