Description - Hilke's Diary by Geseke Clark
'You cannot but enter this child's world. Filled with all the usual joys and anxieties of childhood, and a self-possessed determination to behave in a practical and helpful way, it is a world in which the people and events figuring in what we call "history" are fairly mysterious to her. They are facts, facts she never really questions.' Matthew Parris, courtesy of The Times

Author Biography - Geseke Clark
Charlotte Clark is Hilke's younger sister. She translated Hilke's Diary so that today's children could share her story. She has her own story to tell of her experiences being evacuated in Germany in the war and has written papers and often gives talks on the subject. She lives in Warwickshire. Hilke married an Englishman in the 1950s. Tragically, she was killed in a car crash aged just 30, soon after having her first child. Charlotte later married her husband and brought up Hilke's son as her own.
