In this important volume, Dorinda Makanaonalani Nicholson commemorates the youngest survivors of World War II. Through a combination of compelling narrative, first-person accounts, archival images, detailed maps, and a timeline of key events, the book paints a vivid and unforgettable portrait of war life through the eyes of children. This captivating, unique chronicle will leave indelible memories in the minds of children and offer valuable insights into all sides of the war.

Readers will meet Japanese-American Allan Hida, who is forced to live in cramped, unheated detention camps in California and Colorado until the war ends; Hedi Wachenheimer, a German-Jewish girl who runs home from school after being called names, and discovers her father and uncle have been taken by the Nazis; and Eiko Arai of Tokyo, who shares the story of her harrowing escape through the burning streets of Tokyo while American B-29 planes drop their deadly firebombs.

"...the foreword written by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright is a fine introduction to this title. The majority of the text is composed of short autobiographical articles written by adults who experienced World War II as children or as teenagers. The text is liberally illustrated with half- to full-page vintage photos with captions that supply additional information."—School Library Journal
