April 28th marks Holocaust Remembrance Day, "Yom Hashoah" in Hebrew. From sunset on the 27th until sunset on the 28th, people around the world will be marking this date—the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising—to remember the devastation of the Holocaust. So many lives lost. So many stories that will never be told. To commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day, Second Story Press and 49th Shelf are offering a special Win The List contest, with the chance to win an inspiring and informative collection of stories about the Holocaust for young readers.

The Holocaust Remembrance Series for Young Readers tells stories of young girls and boys just like them whose lives were shaped by living through this most dangerous time. As a special bonus, the winner will receive a free copy of the new Holocaust Remembrance Series for Young Readers Teacher Resource—Digital Edition. See http://bit.ly/QFf0TG for more.
