Note: 
As in Whispers from the Ghettos, Kacer and McKay have documented individual true stories from the lives of teenage survivors of the Holocaust. In some cases, the lives of the teens are saved because of their special skills, e.g. knowledge of the German language or the ability to read aircraft blueprints. Many of the stories deal with the arrival at Auschwitz – selection, stripping, hair shearing, cold showers, thin clothing, repeated lineups for counting, etc. – but each is remarkable for being personal and detailed. Also included is a 5-minute play, “The Liberation of Dachau” and a glossary.
