The Hidden Children

by Howard Greenfeld

Published by Ticknor and Fields, 1993
118 pages
ISBN: 0395660742


According to the author, thousands of Jewish children were hidden in European homes during the Holocaust and survived. Courage, ingenuity and vigilance are reported, along with the high emotional toll on children removed from their names and families, from religious practice and identity, from homes and towns, from truth-telling in general. The adults interviewed for this compilation of amazing childhood reminiscences are now middle aged and living in the U.S.A. First-hand accounts are shown in italics and interspersed with the author's comments. Black and white photos are reproduced when available. A bibliography and index are included. CCBC categories: Historical People, Places And Events.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
