About the Author

Alwin Meyer is a prizewinning author, journalist and curator who lives in Germany.


'Shattering... When you're writing about Auschwitz, where one million people were murdered, it's easy for everything to become a blur of numbers. But Meyer turns the statistics back into stories: telling us where the children came from, how they survived, and what happened to them after the war.'
Daily Telegraph

'An important book at a crucial time.'
San Antonio Review of Books

'In a list reminiscent of Schindler's, every name in the index corresponds to a tale of torture, suffering and loss. Opening the book randomly takes courage, as the risk is to possibly be confronted with paragraphs detailing the murder of newborns by willing nurses, or mothers kicked to death by guards. Only the photos of the surviving children allow the reader time to breathe, although Alwin found there were always moments of hope - even in Auschwitz.'
Jewish News

'This is a compelling book, magnificently researched and fluently written. The testimony of child survivors, on which the book heavily draws, is heart-rending; the sense of loss, and of being lost, that it conveys is haunting. The extraordinary range of primary documentation is matched by the swift passage of many stories, which makes this book an absorbing read - eloquent, powerful and abounding with humanity.'
Monica Tempian, Victoria University of Wellington
