This book consists of five diaries of teenagers who were killed in the Holocaust: David Rubinowicz, Yitzhak Rudashevski, Moshe Flinker, Eva Heyman and Anne Frank. It is so very interesting to read how each of the teens viewed what was happening around them and to them. The five diaries are compared in the final chapter and that is really quite compelling. These children all started keeping diaries in the early or mid-teens until they were brought to an extermination camp and killed. It is also very intriguing to know what these teens were thinking about, what kept them going, how their thought process worked during this difficult time. I have read Anne Frank's diary, but this book compares her situation and her entries to the other teens and that sheds some different perspectives on it. These teens seem much older than their years and of course their final entries are very sad indeed as we know what those final entries mean. ( )

An examination of the Holocaust through the eys of 5 teenagers who kept diaries before their deaths at the hands of the Nazis. Anne Frank is, of course, one of these, but her experiences are compared and contrasted with the other 4 teens who saw different sides of the Death Machine that was Hitler's Germany. This is the first time I have seen Anne put into context with others of her generation. I found the whole book to be riveting. ( )
