Children in the holocaust and world war ii their secret diaries

Twenty-three young people, ages ten through eighteen, share their experiences of the war, including Nazi concentration camps, the Warsaw ghetto, bombings, the Nazi blitzkrieg, and betrayal. This book marks the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II. It includes 23 diaries written by young people ages 10 to 18 from several countries, including Poland, Holland, and Germany. These touching stories give insight into how people, especially children, survive horror. Some of the diarists are survivors, some are not. In this unprecedented anthology of diaries written by children from across Nazi-occupied Europe and England, 23 boys and girls, aged 10 through 18, recount in vivid detail the horrors they lived through, and sometimes did not survive. With a power that recalls Anne Frank, the diarists record their experiences with an unguarded eloquence that belies their years.

  • "Children in the Holocaust and World War II is an extraordinary, unprecedented anthology of diaries written by children all across Nazi-occupied Europe and in England. Twenty-three young people, ages ten through eighteen, recount in vivid detail the horrors they lived through, day after day. As powerful as The Diary of Anne Frank and Zlata's Diary, here are children's experiences'all written with an unguarded eloquence that belies their years. The diarists include a Hungarian girl, selected by Mengele to be put in a line of prisoners who were tortured and murdered; a Danish Christian boy executed by the Nazis for his partisan work; and a twelve-year-old Dutch boy who lived through the Blitzkrieg in Rotterdam. In the Janowska death camp, eleven-year-old Pole Janina Heshele so inspired her fellow prisoners with the power of her poetry that they found a way to save her from the Nazi ovens. Mary Berg was imprisoned at sixteen in the Warsaw ghetto even though her mother was American and Christian. She left an eyewitness record of ghetto atrocities, a diary she was able to smuggle out of captivity. Moshe Flinker, a sixteen-year-old Netherlander, was betrayed by an informer who led the Gestapo to his family's door; Moshe and his parents died in Auschwitz in 1944. They come from Czechoslovakia, Austria, Israel, Poland, Holland, Belgium, Hungary, Lithuania, Russia, England, and Denmark. They write in spare, searing prose of life in ghettos and concentration camps, of bombings and Blitzkriegs, of fear and courage, tragedy and transcendence. Their voices and their vision ennoble us all."@en
