Storming the Tulips Author Describes Childhood Under Nazi Rule

November 12, 2011

Much has been written about the horrors of living through the Holocaust, but we don’t often hear of the day-to-day dread the children experienced, never knowing if their friends would be captured, never knowing if their parents would be captured, never knowing if they would be captured, never knowing if they would have food, never knowing security–never, never knowing.

Hannie J. Voyles describes what it was like as she was forced to watch the Jews being rounded up for deportation and ultimate extermination. She was eight years old.

    70 or more years later, the pain of watching and listening to the above encounter is eternally severe . Time does not heal human horror. I will, however, read Storming The Tulips.

      Mr. Siegel,
      Our sole purpose in keeping this horror alive is so others can experience it vicariously through victims like you and Hannie J. Voyles. We must educate our young people so that even though they are generations away from the Holocaust, they can still understand that it was real, that the people on both sides were real, and that we must never, ever, allow such a horror to repeat itself. Thank you for reading Storming the Tulips. If you find it to be a valuable resource, please pass it on to others.
