    1. Though this is a collection of diaries and writings by adolescents, it's not a young adult book. It's more academic. Many if not most of the diary excerpts included are either out of print elsewhere or have never been published before. The diaries vary in quality and in detail, reflecting the variety of writers; the only thing they have in common is they were young Jews in occupied Europe. Each diary is prefaced with a detailed introduction describing what is known of the author's life and fate. [...]


    2. Diaries are useful, but in some ways they are so double edged. A prime example of this would be Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl. For many students, it is an introduction to WW II. It allows young children an entry way in to a subject that is both difficult and painful. Yet, as several critics have pointed out, the diary is limited because it presents, usually, one point of view. Therefore, Frank's Diary presents a rather limited view of one person in hiding. This collection amends that. Fr [...]


    3. Heartbreaking and important, Salvaged Pages was the first published book which focused solely upon the diaries of young people kept during the Holocaust. The diarists come from all walks of life and many different countries, and whilst some accounts are arguably better written than others, each is fascinating. Zapruder has deftly and sensitively edited the collection, selecting the entries which she feels evoke particular horrors or uncertainties. The introductory pages which she has written abo [...]


    4. Of course I gave this book 5 stars. It's my book! Appreciate all the kind reviews, especially from people I've never met.


    5. 'A mark of the writer's place in the world, a gesture undertaken against obliteration',, August 30, 2014This review is from: Salvaged Pages: Young Writers' Diaries of the Holocaust (Paperback)A terribly moving work that brings the European Jews' suffering in the Holocaust to life. While Anne Frank's Diary is well-known, there were in fact numerous young Jewish people recording their lives in this period, and in this work we read selections from fourteen of them, placed in chronological order - f [...]


    6. Salvaged Pages: Young Writers' Diaries of the Holocaust is an amazing book that brings you into the life of a young generation of people during the Holocaust. The beginning of the book starts off by interpreting the famous Anne Frank's diary to get the audience familiar with what they are about to read. I appreciated how the author incorporating background to to each diary writer before introducing their entertaining diary entries. The strengths of this book is details the author portrayed by ch [...]


    7. A remarkable collectionIt is always hard to personalize the human beings who died in the Holocaust. There were so many, and so much historic knowledge and cultural context died with them. This book gives voice and life to a wide variety of young Jews swept up in that huge event. Some died, some survived, but their young voices were preserved in amber by this diverse collection. This book was hard to read but it also remains with me as though I met each of them in life. I recommend the two append [...]


    8. A very complete book which gives thorough información about the lives of young people in hiding and in concentration camps during world war 2. It's hard to read due to the cruelty the diarists had to endure in those so difficult times. How cruel humans beings can be has always left me speechless. I still wonder why history keeps repeating itself and why it is so difficult to love each other instead of spreading so much hate.


    9. If you want to explore daily life in the Jewish ghettos during the Holocaust, this book will take you there. It's a great next step for students wanting to dive deeper into Holocaust studies. Journal entries of teens and young adults (ages 14-22) show the daily emotional and physical struggle of living under Hitler's regime in these ghettos, but it also shows how heirarchies still arise and human nature of survival kicks in--even when we are all on the same team.



    10. A fascinating read!This is a well researched, very informative and beautiful but harrowing collection of diaries written by young people during the Holocaust. The author done a brilliant job in connecting the subject and writers by their circumstances and situation, what their diaries convey and how it relates to other testimonies. We come to understand that Anne Frank wasn’t the only voice who speaks in terms of the holocaust, but from these accounts we enter the worlds of writers who become [...]


    11. Alexandra spoke to our group during my fellowship with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in 2002. She was a young scholar fresh from Harvard, and her dedication to deciphering the words of these children has proven invaluable. I use her work in my classroom, and the response from my students is always eye-opening.


    12. This was hard to read, such horrible things happening to lives ended too soon, but it was interesting to read of other young people during the Holocaust. I was able to hear Ms. Zapruder speak about this work and was very impressed.


    13. Totally what you expect- heart breaking and eye opening and deeply moving. They were just regular teenagers living their realities when everything shattered. Good, bad, mundane, heroic- these journal insights had it all.


    14. There was one diary I WOULD not read. It was a littles girls. There were warnings that she knows if someone had read her diary because she had set bobby traps. She didn't know she would die, and her diary would be published for all to see.


    15. If you can power through the length, you find a collection of touching journals and recounts -that at least for me- caused me to stop and think.



    16. I adore this book. It was so real and so moving. It launched me into a whole study of Holocaust journals. I come back to this one again and again.
