Winners: Holocaust books

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, a book by John Boyne
In the UK, Holocaust Memorial Day takes place on 27 January.

It marks the anniversary when soldiers freed people held in a Nazi concentration camp in Auschwitz.

And to reflect this we had some special books to giveaway.

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is a brand new book about a young German boy called Bruno - and we had five signed copies to giveaway.

Winners also got a book about Anne Frank, who became famous for writing a diary whilst in hiding from the Germans during World War II.

The lucky winners are:

  • Steven, 11, Basildon
  • Conor, 10, Honiton
  • Tristan, 11, Birkenhead
  • Clare, 9, Cambridge
  • Delyth, 14, Goodwick

who knew that the Auschwitz concentration camp was in Poland.

Well done!
