Listen to the stories of Alicia, Civia, Ann, George, Judith, Akiva, Larry, and Tonia-eight survivors of the Holocaust, and eight of the bravest, most resilient men and women you'll ever have the privilege to hear. They came from different parts of Europe-Hungary, Poland, Latvia, Romania -- but they were all children when war, persecution, and imprisonment interrupted their lives. And when liberation finally came, they were still young people, alone and homeless in a world that didn't know what to do with them.
The end of World War II is not the end of the story of the Holocaust. Howard Greenfeld's groundbreaking book features primary source material, as well as more than 80 archival blackand-white photographs, and presents a chapter in history that is often overlooked: from war to liberation to the DP camps to emigration and beyond. Includes historical sidebars, suggestions for further reading and index.
