About this title

Synopsis:

With excerpts from personal interviews and more than sixty-five of the survivors' own black-and-white photographs as well as archival pictures, Howard Greenfeld's landmark book presents an important chapter in history: the story of young men and women after the Holocaust.

Ann, George, Civia, Alicia, Akiva, Judith, Larry, and Tonia. In many ways, these young people are just like all of us. But their stories are extraordinary, because they lived through one of the unspeakable tragedies in human history -- the Holocaust of World War II.

On May 8, 1945, when the Allies announced the unconditional surrender of Germany, the war in Europe was over. But the stories of these eight young survivors were far from over. Often adrift and alone, they found themselves fighting to survive in a world that didn't always want them and didn't know where they belonged.

In their own words, these Holocaust survivors describe their journeys after liberation, from hiding places and concentration camps through displaced persons camps, illicit border crossings, emigration, and beyond.

About the Author:

Howard Greenfeld grew up in New York City; graduated from Columbia University; and lived in Rome, Florence, and Camaiore, Italy; and in Paris, France. He wrote twenty books for young adults, including biographies of Marc Chagall, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and the Impressionist painters. He founded the Orion Press to publish English-language translations of European writers and has translated several literary works himself from both French and Italian. He wrote the definitive book on publishing for young readers, Books: From Writer to Reader, a text which has also been used in college courses.

He wrote two critically acclaimed books about the Holocaust. The first, The Hidden Children, was described by The Horn Book in a starred review as "inspiring, and often troubling, reading . . . A lovely, important book about heroism and survival." The second, After the Holocaust, uses excerpts from personal interviews and archival photographs to explore the experiences of young survivors in the wake of World War II.

Howard Greenfeld died in 2006.
