Sternkinder

Asscher-Pinkhof, a Dutch teacher, novelist, and Jew who taught at the special schools that were set up for Jewish children during the War, tells in these brief fictive vignettes the stories tragic, brave, heroic, selfish, cruel, innocent of the young Dutch victims of the Holocaust whose childhoods were spent in detention centers, in transit camps, and finally in “Star Hells” like Bergen-Belsen, with only a few surviving to liberation.
