Summary"Formed in 1990, the Melbourne Child Survivors of the Holocaust has more than 200 members... Members initially came together to discuss their wartime experiences... to represent the interests of child survivors, to support each other and to keep alive the memory of the Holocaust, including the 1.5 million children who were murdered... This book has numerous aims, above all, telling the stories of the child survivors for their immediate relatives and the wider Jewish and non-Jewish readers... The [writers'] experiences range from the unbelievable horrors of the concentration camps, ghettos and being hidden in confined spaces, to physical abuse, starvation, and the only ones of large families to survive... The stories are of courage and fortitude, evoking admiration." —Stan Marks, Introduction
