Roussan Publishers

Roussan has also put out two books for teenage readers. Lillian Boraks-Nemetz’s The Lenski File ($8.95, ages 14 and up) reintroduces Slava Lenski in this sequel to The Sunflower Diary. Like the main character, the Polish-born author is a child survivor of the Holocaust. The autobiographical aspects of the book lend emotion and insight to a story that opens the door to a part of history that should be discussed and remembered. mRb
