Since autism is a spectrum disorder, however, some kids who have autism might only have a few symptoms, while others may have many symptoms. Some people don't know how to act around kids who have autism, but, even though these children might seem a little different than most people, these kids are still kids.

Interviews with eighteen Jewish “hidden children” of France and Belgium, telling the story of their survival during World War II. The history of France’s “hidden children” and of the French citizens who saved six out of seven Jewish children and three-fourths of the Jewish adult population from deportation during the Nazi occupation is little known to American readers. In The Hidden Children of France, 1940–1945, Danielle Bailly (a hidden child herself whose family travelled all over rural France before sending her to live with strangers who could protect her) reveals the stories behind the statistics of those who were saved by the extraordinary acts of ordinary people. Eighteen former “hidden children” describe their lives before, during, and after the war, recounting their incredible journeys and expressing their deepest gratitude to those who put themselves at risk to save others. “…make[s] a contribution to our knowledge of the Holocaust.” — AJL Reviews “In interviews, the survivors revealed the social and psychological struggles they have had to cope with over the years. Most have pursued productive careers and raised families. Told in interview or narrative form, both ways are illuminating and made more so by Betty Becker-Theye’s unusually fluent translation.” — Sacramento Book Review “The Hidden Children of France documents the stolen childhoods of eighteen Holocaust survivors who are among the last witnesses of the Nazi era. During this time The New School’s University in Exile brought to safety over 180 great scholars whose very lives, just like these children, were threatened by National Socialism and the evil of Hitler. It is through the stories of survivors that we preserve the truth and history of the past and educate our future generations to ensure compassion and justice for all.” — Bob Kerrey, President, The New School “Meticulous translation. Unlike some testimony literature where the voice recording prevails, in this collection each testimony retains an individual voice.” — Marilyn Gaddis Rose, translator of Charles-Augustin Sainte-Beuve’s Volupté: The Sensual Man

Gender roles in the American Revolutionary War period were not exactly a bastion of progressiveness. However, even during a time when most women were encouraged to shrink from conflict and follow the lead of any man in the vicinity, there were a few iconoclastic females who broke this mold. The defiantly independent heroine at the center of The Hidden Children steadfastly refuses to be held down by social conventions she sees as useless.

In the terrifying summer of 1942 in Belgium, when the Nazis began the brutal roundup of Jewish families, parents searched desperately for safe haven for their children. As Suzanne Vromen reveals in Hidden Children of the Holocaust , these children found sanctuary with other families and schools-but especially in Roman Catholic convents and orphanages. Vromen has interviewed not only those who were hidden as children, but also the Christian women who rescued them, and the nuns who gave the children shelter, all of whose voices are heard in this powerfully moving book. Indeed, here are numerous first-hand memoirs of life in a wartime convent-the secrecy, the humor, the admiration, the anger, the deprivation, the cruelty, and the kindness-all with the backdrop of the terror of the Nazi occupation. We read the stories of the women of the Resistance who risked their lives in placing Jewish children in the care of the Church, and of the Mothers Superior and nuns who sheltered these children and hid their identity from the authorities. Perhaps most riveting are the stories told by the children themselves-abruptly separated from distraught parents and given new names, the children were brought to the convents with a sense of urgency, sometimes under the cover of darkness. They were plunged into a new life, different from anything they had ever known, and expected to adapt seamlessly. Vromen shows that some adapted so well that they converted to Catholicism, at times to fit in amid the daily prayers and rituals, but often because the Church appealed to them. Vromen also examines their lives after the war, how they faced the devastating loss of parents to the Holocaust, struggled to regain their identities and sought to memorialize those who saved them.

An analysis of the trauma of the hidden children and his long-term repercussion. This book is made up of two distinct sections, which are integrally connected. The author’s intent is not only to present and identify the trauma of Jewish children hidden under the Nazi Occupation, but also to analyse its short- and long-term repercussions. To achieve this, Marcel Frydman uses two complementary approaches. The first section is an autobiographical study evoking the experience and conditions in which most Jewish children and adolescents lived during the time of the Occupation - presented from the psychologist’s point of view. This approach is all the richer thanks to the author’s professional career in psychology and a series of studies he carried out focusing on the lives of children deprived of a family environment. The second section contains two retrospective clinical studies: one of a sample of adults that had been hidden as children but who rediscovered their parents after the Liberation; the other of a group of orphans whose parents perished in the camps. Both groups demonstrate the indelible characteristics of the children’s experiences during the time of the Occupation. After having focused on the unspeakable nature of the trauma and how this marks the adult personality, the author attempts to explain the hidden children’s long silence, during which the suffering was internalized. He has identified specific personality traits that brought to light particular vulnerabilities, and the possibility and dangers of transmitting these traits to the next generation. This work was remarkably and rapidly successful in Belgium because it clearly differs from earlier publications based only on the author’s personal experience. All copies of the first edition were sold out in less than eighteen months. A second edition will be printed in Paris by the end of February 2002. Some of our U.S. colleagues - such as Dr. Thomas Jaeger and Dr. J. Khader from Omaha/Nebraska – have emphasized the indisputable importance that this book would have, both in the U.S. and in Israel, if only there were an English version. This is why we are requesting your financial aid for the translation expenses. A sum of 5,000 US $ would allow us to attain this objective. Discover the story of the hiddent children under the Occupation in an essay by a renowned psychologist. EXTRAIT It was barely six in the morning on April 13, 1943 when, along with my cousin who was two years older than me, I left the house where nine Jews had found refuge in order to escape the deportations. Since September 8, 1942, we had been hiding at a tombstone engraver’s – Oscar Dumeunier – just two steps from the Etterbeek cemetery located in Woluwé-St. Lambert, on the outskirts of the Brussels urban area. In this quiet region, relatively far from the city centre, we rarely encountered German soldiers. The apartment at our disposal was located above an unused café. We entered the upper floors from behind the building, after having gone through the owner’s workshop so as to avoid attracting anyone’s attention. The only issue that seemed problematic, at least in the beginning, was that of supplies. In our case, basic caution required that the adults avoid leaving the apartment to shop in the neighbourhood. In fact they all had noticeable foreign accents, which would have attracted attention, thereby making their presence suspicious. As a result, one of the children took up this task, and as a general rule it was my responsibility. The day after the major raid at Brussels’ south train station, a friend of the family rushed into our home at daybreak. She was still frightened and emotionally shocked from the events she had undergone the previous night.
