5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most moving books I have read about the Holocaust, 4 April 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: French Children of the Holocaust: A Memorial (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most powerful, 21 Nov 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: French Children of the Holocaust: A Memorial (Hardcover)
This 11.000 children deported from France, their photos, their faces, their smiles are the most moving and powerful thing I have ever seen.
