Holocaust's Child

Ten Stories of Children Who Survived

Ten children. Some survived with the help of others. Some survived on their own. Some not only survived but helped others survive as well. Each of their stories, like each of them, is different. Their experiences are different. But taken together, with each story in its own historical context, they provide a broad understanding of the struggles of those who survived and those who didn’t.
