What all of them do, however, is remind the entire world of why it's absolutely necessary to stand up for social justice and protect innocents on the receiving end of harm.

They all sound very compelling. I have seen a few of them as movies and read one or two. 'Sophie's Choice' was a most gripping circumstance that I could not help but put myself in her place, which made it a difficult and haunting experience. I Believe it was 'one' of the things in my life that makes me put myself in the shoes of another and gives me compassion.

These all works are worth reading, specially by those who still spread HOLOCAUST DENIAL.

The list of books is amazing. I was shocked to see Mein Kampf listed but after reading why, I can see the point. The events that took place cannot be forgotten in any way and these books (and so many others) can help keep the memory alive for centuries to come. David Irving and his sick mob can deny the holocaust all they want but your book list has more impact than any of Irving's books which is a propaganda piece for Hitler. I can only hope that we may never see an event like this again. Another book that's worth reading is "Sophie Scholl: The Real Story of the Woman Who Defied Hitler" She was part of the White Rose movement that was a non violent resistence group against Hitler. Sadly most of the White Rose were executed, but their bravery lives on and still inspires people everywhere.
