Wars and genocide have never spared children from suffering. This book brings together the youthful memories of sixteen people who lived through different aspects of World War II. The people interviewed are of European origin now living in New Zealand. Their stories tell of the adaptation to the difficulties affecting their lives as children at the time, the parts played in the resistance to the enemy occupation of their territory, and the shelter of potential victims of genocide.
