Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Children were at the center of the Nazi ideology; now we have their history of those years. In this groundbreaking study-based on a wide range of new sources-Nicholas Stargardt details what happened to children of all nationalities and religions living under the Nazi regime. Their stories open a world we have never seen before. As the Nazis overran Europe, children were saved or damned according to their race. Drawing on an untouched wealth of original material-school assignments; juvenile diaries; letters; and even accounts of childrens games-Nicholas Stargardt breaks stereotypes of victimhood and trauma to give us the gripping individual stories of the generation Hitler made.
