"One of the thousands of Jewish children murdered at the hands of the Nazis and their collaborators, Georges Halpern (1935-44) was torn form his parents in 1943 and spent his final two years at the children's home in Izieu, France. While at Izieu, Georgy regularly wrote letters and sent drawings to his parents, describing his life at the children's home, his dreams and his sorrow. Today, this remarkable collection of letters and drawings remains a testament to the courage and hope of a young boy caught in the midst of one of the darkest chapters in the history of mankind. Georgy's hopes for being reunited with his family ended with his murder at the age of eight in a gas chamber at Auschwitz."-the publisher.
