HOLOCAUST HORRIFIED U.S. CHILDREN
April 19, 1993
Recently, Christians and Jews celebrated Easter and Passover. Americans of all creeds who were alive in 1945 remember that it was at this time of the year — a time filled with daffodils, budding trees, and other signs of new life — that they saw the first gruesome evidence of the Holocaust. Six million Jews had been forced by the Nazis into concentration camps and worked to death or systematically killed by firing squads, in gas chambers, or in medical experiments. The Nazis also exterminated as many as 250,000 gypsies and 60,000 gay men. I have just finished writing a book called “Daddy’s Gone to War: The Second World War in the Lives of America’s Children,” which will be published in September. To help me understand this era, 2,500 women and men wrote me of their experiences as homefront children. Many wrote that they saw graphic evidence of the Holocaust in the newsreels and the pages of Life magazine. And it was these images, they recalled, that introduced them to the depths of evil.
