"This stands by itself among the very few books and films that address the stories of children who survived the Holocaust. Reed’s story tells his own tale; but along with it comes the constant and poignant tale of those Jewish parents, including his own, who knew they were virtually certain to die and wanted only the chance that their children might survive."—Richard P. Unsworth, senior fellow at the Kahn Liberal Arts Institute at Smith College

"The book underscores the challenges overcome by all—parents, children, rescuers—in making it possible for most of these children to survive . . . a singularly detailed account of collective survival, and a fascinating one."—Pierre Sauvage, producer and director of the award-winning documentary film Weapons of the Spirit

"Reed is to be commended for the careful archival work and the wide range of primary sources he was able to gather to reconstruct the stories of the nearly 100 children that sought refuge at La Hille as well as the adults that cared for them and helped facilitate their survival."—Shannon L. Fogg, author of The Politics of Everyday Life in Vichy France: Foreigners, Undesirables, and Strangers

  The Children of La Hille

The Children of La Hille   Walter W. Reed (originally Werner Rindsberg) grew up in a Bavarian village near Würzburg and experienced Nazi persecution of Jews, including arrest as a fourteen-year-old on Kristallnacht. After immigrating to New York in 1941, he served as an American soldier from 1943 to 1946, and as an interrogator of German prisoners in General Patton’s Third Army, starting after the liberation of Paris in 1944. A graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism, he pursued a forty-year career in public relations. Since 1998, he has been a frequent speaker about the Holocaust in the United States and in Europe.
