Echoes from World War II - front coverEchoes from World War II: Young Writers Sharing Family Stories

The family stories in this book are remembered from battlefields, prison camps, and homes in twenty countries around the world. Passed down through generations, these compelling stories honor family members who courageously faced their challenges—many bravely living out their beliefs and celebrating their blessings. Sharing these stories sends echoes of inspiration, strength, and courage throughout our world today.

“The stories included here offer personal and powerful perspectives on World War II and what it meant to the people who lived through this period in our history. . . . These young authors—these young historians—are doing incredibly important and engaging work.” —Jody Sowell, Director of Exhibitions and Research, Missouri History Museum

“A must-read for anyone from nine to ninety.” —Peter H. Green, Author of Ben’s War with the U.S. Marines

“These echoes of history from very personal and multinational perspectives tackle serious topics in engaging styles. Some stories reveal World War II–era experiences most have never heard of before. —Linda Austin, Co-author of Cherry Blossoms in Twilight, a World War II Japan memoir
