The book I read was Witness to War by Michael Leapman. This book was about eight true-life stories of children that were sent to concentration camps, and others who the Germans tried to make into German citizens. The German police and army shipped off some kids to different places so they did not get caught. A lot of the Jewish people that got sent to camps were well-respected people in a society of German.

When I read the book "Witnesses To War" I couldn't put the book down. I was disgusted by the true Nazi persecution.

Anne Frank is here; so is Renee Roth-Hano, whose own book Touch Wood has already described her experiences as a Jewish girl hidden in a French convent. Another Jewish girl escapes Germany through the Kindertransport; a Jewish girl from Paris finds safety in the village of Le Chambon; other children narrowly escape the Warsaw ghetto. When I read the book "Witnesses To War" I couldn't put the book down.

Award-winning journalist Michael Leapman provides valuable background and insight into their histories, but it is the stories themselves - vivid, unembellished and utterly compelling - that stand as the finest testimony to the courage of the children of the Second World War.

Each of the children represents a different kind of persecution and method of survival.

The experiences of eight children who suffered at the hands of the Nazis are cogently related in a book that includes many documentary photographs and clear historical backgrounds for context. Seven of the eight lived to tell their stories; the eighth was Anne Frank. Each of the children represents a different kind of persecution and method of survival. Beate Siegel, the daughter of a prominent Jewish lawyer, was sent at age 14 to live with a family in England as part of the Kindertransport.

Wonderful book. I ran across this book in one of my fellow teachers classrooms and wanted it on sight. The book has maps and numerous photos. I love this book!

This book is a collection of tales, spellbinding as they are amazing, in a time of darkness, pain, and suffering. Many people risked their lives to save others, for a vast assortment of reasons. It tells of those children caught in the "web" of Nazi brutality, escaping Germany on Kindertransports, those raised in Auschwitz, forced into the Lebensborn program, these are children like our sons and daughters. They barely have lived, yet they are forced to suffer the consequences of war.

My favorite story is that of the children of Lidice, Czechloslovakia. The strength, courage, and unwillingness to forget who they were inside shone through despite their oppression, their new selves. I think the author was inspired by these children, all children, just as I am, and wanted the world to know how many millions of children, full of hopes and dreams, were forced to give up the fight, to stop living. And how they were innocent victims of a man's lust for power, popularity, and wealth, and a countries' lust for revenge.

I really liked the book. Every story touched the inside of my heart. This is a perfect portrayal of the tragedy of the Holocaust through the minds of the victims.

I do not think children under the age of ten should read this book.

I was impressed by this book because it presents the suffering of people in WWII without staying completely focused on the Jews. The Nazis were willing to murder anybody, who, for any reason, did not fit in to their ideology or view of the world. With this book, there is a more clear demonstration of that - yes, a couple of the stories are about Jewish children, there is also a story concerning the plight of a Polish child, one about a gypsy girl, and a child's view of the horrendous occurence at Lidice, Czechoslovakia. The stories about the Jewish children are also varied; one escaped via the Kindertransport, one story was about girls hidden in a convent, and another whose father was featured in a very famous photo that made it out of Germany to tip people off to the kinds of things happening there.
My main gripe about the book is fairly minor. I enjoyed the pictures and the background given to each story, but every once in awhile I felt that the text was patronising. Mind you, this is targeted towards a juvenile audience, but if one believes that the children that will be reading this book are mature enough to deal with this type of material, they probably are not in too terrible need of some of the simpler explanations, and I found these a bit distracting from the focus of the text.
Overall, it is a very good book that serves a subject that is often neglected.

Witnesses to War tells the story of Eight children and how they survived the second world war. Their stories will make you cry, and smile at the end, knowing that they are going to have a much better life once they escaped they situations they were in. This book brings to light what it was like for people in different countries from different backgrounds and religions. I really enjoyed reading this book, not because of the horrors it talks about, but because it's informative and factual. It's a part of our history, and it's always a good idea to know what happened.

The book I read was Witness to War by Michael Leapman. This book was about eight true-life stories of children that were sent to concentration camps, and others who the Germans tried to make into German citizens. The German police and army shipped off some kids to different places so they did not get caught. A lot of the Jewish people that got sent to camps were well-respected people in a society of German. Most of the people in this book are Jewish but one of the kids is a gypsy. I think this book was very good. It is very odd that people can treat others so cruel.

I picked this book up from my local book store with great curiosity. I am doing a History GCSE and am especially interested in WW2, and how it affected everyday people like myself. This book looks at the war through the eyes of children. Not only Jewish children but Polish and Gypsy children too. Some parts of the book drew tears to my eyes. I was shocked at some of the horrific things these children endured. I noticed when reading the details about this book, that it is supposed to be suitable for children aged 9-12 years old. I my self am 15 and the other review writer is in college. I have a younger brother aged 11 and I do not think that this book would be appropriate for him! Some of the text would be too difficult for someone his age and a lot of the things mentoined he would not understand (I doubt if he even knows what a concentration camp is! ). Also some of the things talked about are a little too advanced for his peer group. To say I thouroughly enjoyed the book makes me sound slightly morbid, but it was a deeply touching book. Poeple who have read THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK will most likely find this of interest also.

When I read the book "Witnesses To War" I couldn't put the book down. I was disgusted by the true Nazi persecution. The book is about collections of the true life stories during the holocaust and the Nazi persecution . One of the stories I liked the best was about the Polish children being tested for Germanization because it was twisted that the Nazi's could capture a child .The parents were helpless. I liked this book a lot because I am interested in the holocaust . It's well written and makes you want to read more aobut the holocaust.
