Praise

“Impressive. . . . In comprehensively studying a population defined not by race, religion or nationality but by age, Stargardt has added considerably and imaginatively to the scholarship of the Holocaust and war.” —The Baltimore Sun

“Magnificent. . . . Stargardt is brilliant. . . . His great achievement is to touch us with the experiences of all these children.” —The Guardian (London)

“Stargardt tells this uncomfortable tale at its bitterest moment, from the point of view of the children who perished under Nazism or lived through it.” —The Washington Post Book World

“Illuminating. . . . Witnesses of War belongs on the bookshelf on anyone who purports to know the history of the 20th century. . . . An important contribution to the study of the war’s psychological impact on children.” —Houston Chronicle
