Hardcover, 64 pages, June 2005.

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