Description - Children with a Star by Deborah Dwork

This is a history of the experience of Jewish children in Nazi-occupied Europe, and of the adults that helped them. One-and-a-half million Jewish children died in the Holocaust. Many more survived - they hid, fled, or were transported to safety. Hundreds of thousands were brutally separated from their parents - toddlers torn from their mothers' sides. Others hid, sometimes for years, or were cared for by strangers. Those that did not die carry forever the appalling memory of their ordeal. This book recreates the experience of hundreds of those Jewish children. For five years, Deborah Dwork met and interviewed child survivors in France, Holland, Italy, Poland, England, Israel and the US. These were deeply harrowing encounters, honoured in this book by simple and unadorned telling. Though children are at the centre of the story, the book is inevitably a wider history of Judeocide. There is much that is wholly new, and at both the scholarly level and that of the general reader, the text is immensely powerful.
