Thousands of children spent years, during World War II, hiding from their enemies, the Nazis, in dark, dank basements, attic rooms, convents, or haylofts.
Each day brought new threats of discovery and annihilation. Yet, in spite of all the terror they experienced, they consider themselves the lucky ones. After all, they escaped the death camps where the Nazis killed their parents and families.
Ed Lessing, one of the surviving Hidden Children of the Holocaust, tells the compelling story of his two-and-a-half years in hiding and his experiences in the Dutch Resistance as a teenager during the Holocaust years.
Ed’s story, which can be found in the book, The Hidden Children, by Jane Marks, emphasizes the courage of his mother, father and others who helped him survive.
