About 5,000 children were imprisoned in the Kaunas Ghetto from 1941-1944, of whom some 250-300 were smuggled out of the ghetto, hidden by Gentiles and survived. This book is a collective memory of events that happened to Kaunas Jewry during the Nazi occupation of Lithuania. It contains 50 stories of people who suffered through the Holocaust in their childhood in Kaunas. Most of the contributors are writing about their ordeal for the first time, after more then 60 years of silence. The stories cover the background of the families before the war, life in the Ghetto, and the main tragic events that happened in Kaunas during three years of fascist regime in Lithuania. The memoirs describe how children were smuggled out of the Ghetto and their experiences and feelings living with the gentiles who sheltered them.

About the Author:

Solomon Abramovich's sister Ariela Abramovich Sef was rescued by their parents from Kaunas Ghetto. They were able to preserve some documents and retell those incredible human stories of survival in adversity. Solomon Abramovich is a surgeon at Imperial College, London and is also engaged in academic work and teaching.
Yakov Zilberg was born in 1942 in the Kaunas ghetto and survived the Holocaust as a `hidden child'. He graduated from the Kaunas Medical School in 1965, and in 1972 emigrated to Israel where he was actively involved in the management and administration of Israeli Health Care services. He retired in 2009 aged 67.
