This volume is a landmark of Holocaust Literature and among the finest works of fiction produced by any writer since World War II. The center of Arnost Lustig's impressive oeuvre, the collection expresses his faith in the power of individuals - especially children - to shape their own destinies. These profoundly moving stories transcend the gruesome realities of the camps; their strength is that of the human spirit, the individual's ability to achieve moral triumph through action. Lustig's fiction shines among this century's outstanding literary achievements. This volume contains sixteen short stories previously published under the titles Diamond of the Night and Night and Hope and the novel Darkness Casts No Shadow. Conceived and written as a whole, they are published here together for the first time.

Children in the Holocaust and World War II is an extraordinary, unprecedented anthology of diaries written by children all across Nazi-occupied Europe and in England. Twenty-three young people, ages ten through eighteen, recount in vivid detail the horrors they lived through, day after day. As powerful as The Diary of Anne Frank and Zlata's Diary, here are children's experiences—all written with an unguarded eloquence that belies their years. The diarists include a Hungarian girl, selected by Mengele to be put in a line of prisoners who were tortured and murdered; a Danish Christian boy executed by the Nazis for his partisan work; and a twelve-year-old Dutch boy who lived through the Blitzkrieg in Rotterdam. In the Janowska death camp, eleven-year-old Pole Janina Heshele so inspired her fellow prisoners with the power of her poetry that they found a way to save her from the Nazi ovens. Mary Berg was imprisoned at sixteen in the Warsaw ghetto even though her mother was American and Christian. She left an eyewitness record of ghetto atrocities, a diary she was able to smuggle out of captivity. Moshe Flinker, a sixteen-year-old Netherlander, was betrayed by an informer who led the Gestapo to his family's door; Moshe and his parents died in Auschwitz in 1944. They come from Czechoslovakia, Austria, Israel, Poland, Holland, Belgium, Hungary, Lithuania, Russia, England, and Denmark. They write in spare, searing prose of life in ghettos and concentration camps, of bombings and Blitzkriegs, of fear and courage, tragedy and transcendence. Their voices and their vision ennoble us all.

The life story of Anne Frank set chronologically against the significant events of the Holocaust, e.g. Kristallnacht, the Kindertransports and D-Day. Spanning Anne's short life from 1929 to 1945, and the early rise of Hitler to the liberation of the concentration camps, this highly moving account examines both the fate of the Frank family and the wider picture of the Holocaust. Photographs illustrate this engaging yet ultimately harrowing biography, together with short extracts from autobiographies, diaries and letters of other young people who had personal experience of the Holocaust, providing a contrast to Anne's life in hiding.

This important reference work highlights a number of disparate themes relating to the experience of children during the Holocaust, showing their vulnerability and how some heroic people sought to save their lives amid the horrors perpetrated by the Nazi regime. This book is a comprehensive examination of the people, ideas, movements, and events related to the experience of children during the Holocaust.

In many cases, it examines the very act of children's survival and how this was achieved despite enormous odds.

Children during the Holocaust, from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, tells the story of the Holocaust through the eyes, and fates, of its youngest victims. The ten chapters follow the arc of the persecutory policies of the Nazis and their sympathizers and the impact these measures had on Jewish children and adolescents—from the years leading to the war, to the roundups, deportations, and emigrations, to hidden life and death in the ghettos and concentration camps, and to liberation and coping in the wake of war. This volume examines the reactions of children to discrimination, the loss of livelihood in Jewish homes, and the public humiliation at the hands of fellow citizens and explores the ways in which children's experiences paralleled and diverged from their adult counterparts. Additional chapters reflect upon the role of non-Jewish children as victims, perpetrators, and bystanders during World War II. Offering a collection of personal letters, diaries, court testimonies, government documents, military reports, speeches, newspapers, photographs, and artwork, Children during the Holocaust highlights the diversity of children's experiences during the nightmare years of the Holocaust.

The Holocaust is one of the most shocking events of the 20th century and one that continues to resonate today. Its Nazi perpetrators showed no mercy, not even to children and perhaps, as a result, it is often the experiences of the children of this era that speak to us most strongly. This moving and important book explores what happened to children during the Holocaust, from the early persecution of the Jews to the 'final solution'. It also considers the experiences of those who escaped or hid, and those who survived. As the Holocaust moves further away from us in history, it is important to keep it in the consciousness of the next generation. By using the experiences of children, this book is a powerful way to engage the attention and sympathy of young people today.

A blend of memoir, reportage and oral history, Children of the Holocaust was the first book to examine the inter-generational transmission of trauma. In a starred reviewPublishers Weekly wrote: “Charts new and sensitive territory as it provides important insights into the long-term effects of the Holocaust on those who survived and the ways their trauma shaped the lives of the next generation. Epstein’s courageous, dogged probing of the past is beautifully written, but it is the discoveries she makes and the process of uncovering them that informs her words, that makes the soundings so deep, so human, so haunting.” Originally published in 1979, it has never gone out of print and has been widely translated and anthologized. The eBook, published in 2010, includes a new preface and an updated bibliography. The sequel to Children of the Holocaust, a family and social history of Central European Jews, is Where She Came From. A “Best Book of the Year.” — New York Times “An enormous achievement, heart-wrenching and unforgettable.” — Chicago Tribune “A passionate, brilliantly illuminating work.” — Los Angeles Sunday Times

The testimonies of individuals who survived the Holocaust as children pose distinct emotional and intellectual challenges for researchers: as now-adult interviewees recall profound childhood experiences of suffering and persecution, they also invoke their own historical awareness and memories of their postwar lives, requiring readers to follow simultaneous, disparate narratives. This interdisciplinary volume brings together historians, psychologists, and other scholars to explore child survivors’ accounts. With a central focus on the Kestenberg Holocaust Child Survivor Archive’s over 1,500 testimonies, it not only enlarges our understanding of the Holocaust empirically but illuminates the methodological, theoretical, and institutional dimensions of this unique form of historical record.
