4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 4 April 1998
Format: Hardcover
This book has succeeded with relatively few words what so many have failed to do with numbers, nightmarish photographs of survivors, and casts of outsized political and military personalities. In page after page the reader sees pictures of thousands of innocent children who did not know what awaited them. The size of the book alone might make one think it likely to be tedious, but after one hour of looking at the faces of happy children the reader feels emotionally drained but compelled to move through the entire book out of anger, pity, disbelief, and certainly, a feeling of outrage that the atrocities committed were done in the name of civilization, and with a perverted sense of cultural and "racial" purity driving so many people to commit such acts, by commission or omission, of unadulterated evil. The emotional impact of this book is overwhelming.

This 11.000 children deported from France, their photos, their faces, their smiles are the most moving and powerful thing I have ever seen.

Not a history book but a scrapbook 19 Sep 2001
By Michael Casey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Their passports, personal photos, and names -- all that remains of the over 11,000 French children carried off to the camps. This book is fragile, printed on thin paper with a delicate spine, and it is also has the strongest presence of any book I have ever read. The sheer impact of all of those young children cannot help but make the strongest among us feel sadness and loss. Much praise must go to the authors for putting so much time and effort into so many that have been forgotten.

A powerful book. 22 Jun 2011
By Michael D. Markovitch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Some books you read, some books read you. This book read me. The pictures and descriptions contained in this book were very stirring. This book also provides more information on the very active role of the French government in arresting and persecuting the Jews during the Nazi occupation. Well worth anyone's time.
