Child Survivors of the Holocaust New York: Brunner-Routledge.

By the end of the second world war 1.5 million (90%) of Jewish children had been killed by the Nazis. In this book, ten child survivors tell their stories. Paul Valent, himself a child survivor and psychiatrist, explores with profound analytical insight the deepest memories, overt and covert, of the children he interviewed. At the time of the Holocaust the children varied from 0-16 years of age. They came from different countries and had varied experiences that included being hidden,  and being in ghettoes and concentration camps. Their experiences included starvation, torture, and sexual abuse. Valent explores how they coped over the decades and how they strove to make meaning of their lives.
