In paragraph 2 of life in shadows Hidden children and the holocaust, the text states,"Thousands of Jewish children survived this brutal carnage, however, many because they were hidden. With identities disguised, and often physically concealed from the outside world, these youngsters faced constant fear, dilemmas, and danger." Children were always faced with fear during the holocaust and if they did not have that feeling they would be dead. The nazis didn't care if they were young or old, they just wanted to rid the world of Jews.
In paragraph 3 of the children who survived the Holocaust the text states,"Liberation for children was not necessarily liberating. Mostly, parents did not come for them. Children waited for years until hope too had died. The youngest survivors did not know their names, country of origin, or even their first language." This shows how children didn't know much of anything besides running during the Holocaust. They only had a number if they were in a concentration camp if they could make it that far without being killed. Most children were killed on sight in concentration camps or starved. They were weaker and had less muscles than the adults so they were useless to the nazis.
Most of the time, children in Europe were bones and flesh.
In paragraph 6 of the children who survived the Holocaust, the text states,"Children were swept up from Europe and resettled in England and Israel, the United States and Canada, Australia and South Africa. Their experiences were very different from the older survivors. Generally speaking, those under age 16 or 17, by war's end, were taken in by foster families, returned to school, and discouraged to speak of the past." The lucky ones who did survive and survived long enough were taken in by rescuers and had the same life as any other kid, besides the fact that most of their family was killed and the only family they kind of had was their foster family. This showed loneliness in thinking that you might never see your parents or brothers or sisters again.
In paragraph 18 in life in shadows Hidden children and the Holocaust the text states,"During bombings, Jewish children had to remain hidden, unable to flee to the safety of shelters. Under these conditions, the children often suffered from a lack of human interaction and endured boredom and fear." This meant that Jewish children could not do anything to fully endure their safety. Even in bombings they were not allowed to move to a desired location to stay. Their feelings were full of boredom and fear when they had nothing to do and their minds often got the best of them.
