KIRKUS REVIEW

A visit to the Sicilian sulphur mince and observation of their abuse of child labor first started Otto Zoff on the material for this book on children in the world today, a book based on personal experience on the continent and on authentic records of others. Today's young, butchered in Spain during the Civil War, migrating on the roads of China, fanatically overtaxed and brutally indoctrinated under Hitler, learning to die for the Emperor in Japan, starved in France, bombed in England, fighting in the Underground of occupied countries, victims of starvation and disease, deprived of schooling, exposed to bloodshed, orphaned. Then there are stories of Jewish children in concentration camps, of Polish massacres, surpassing atrocity stories of the last war. A shocking record -- with still a note of hope in the toughness and bravery and courage of youth.
