Summary"[An] 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... They come from Czechoslovakia, Austria, Israel, Poland, Holland, Belgium, Hungary, Lithuania, Russia, England, and Denmark. They write... of life in ghettos and concentration camps, of bombings and Blitzkriegs, of fear and courage, tragedy and transcendence." —Book jacket
