Product description

A haunting collection of voices from the Second World War, which shows what it was like to be a child during modern history’s most destructive conflict. Based on taped interviews from the Imperial War Museum, these true-life accounts tell stories of the war from several perspectives and places. Evacuees, Holocaust survivors, Blitz survivors and German children all tell their own unique and moving stories, illustrated with vivid photographs and a historical timeline. Describing a world-shattering conflict through the eyes of real witnesses, this is a rare and moving opportunity to see the war as children who lived through it did.

    This book is made up of people’s memories of the second world war. It has loads of pictures and is very informative and gives you a broad selection – everything from the holocaust survivors to the blitz casualties – Great read but for ages 12+
