Based on the second edition of Salvaged Pages, the multimedia version incorporates a wealth of new content in a variety of media. Each diary is illustrated with personal records gathered from survivors, loved ones of the writers, and archives, including photographs of the diarists and their families, pages of the original manuscripts, artwork and letters. The text includes links to historical documents and photographs and offers glossary definitions of unfamiliar terms, biographies of key figures, and maps showing the journeys taken by each writer during the Holocaust. Wherever possible, the book includes interview clips of the surviving writers or their immediate relatives speaking about events captured in the diaries (some recorded for the first time especially for this edition.) Finally, each chapter includes video clips of the author reading key passages and discussing them in depth.
PRAISE FOR Multimedia Edition:
“In the best of scenarios, when a book is reissued in a second edition, it’s because so much new scholarship has been created around the topic that the first set of pages just cry out for expansion and even reinvention. This is certainly the case with Salvaged Pages, [in this] readable, informative, and enlightening edition.”—Jewish Book Council
"Salvaged Pages shares the despair, frustrations, hopes, and loves of young adults who struggle mightily with the impact of the hatred and indifference of their neighbors. My students are enthralled." — Lynne Ravas, Lower Dauphin Middle School
"Salvaged Pages is a window into the private world of young diarists existing under Nazi occupation. Readers cannot help but respond to the humanity of writers in a world whose deprivations we can only begin to comprehend through their own words." — Elaine Culbertson, Director, Holocaust and Jewish Resistance Teachers’ Program
"Salvaged Pages offers important perspectives for today’s Holocaust education students. The voices of young adults during the Holocaust resonate in a way that can’t be replicated by other resources." —Jennifer L. Goss, Robert E. Lee High School
