About the Author

Emmy E. Werner is a developmental psychologist and research professor at the University of California at Davis. She is the author of many books, including Through the Eyes of Innocents (Westview Press 2000) Reluctant Witnesses (Westview Press, 1998) Pioneer Children on the Journey West (Westview Press 1995).


Having authored several books on children's ability to survive trauma (e.g., Reluctant Witnesses: Children's Voices from the Civil War), developmental psychologist Werner now turns to children's memories of World War II and her own reminiscences of growing up in wartime Germany during "a global conflict in which more children [were] killed and maimed than in all previous wars in the world." The result is surprisingly upbeat and utterly compelling: a story of children's resiliency in the face of repeated uprootings and batterings. In the middle of the fighting, Sandra, aged ten, wrote: "Don't ever hurt the children. They are not guilty of anything." Read this affecting book, and you will be hard-pressed not to agree. While there have been numerous first-person accounts of the war, this reviewer has not come across another with quite this angle. A simply wonderful book that deserves many readers.ÄDavid Keymer, California State Univ., Stanislaus Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
