Reviews

"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
