During WWII,as in any other war, all the children were victims,without exception.Of course the degree and severity on how they were victims had a significant difference. Some lost their lives,while others lost their innocence. Many of those who lost their innocence had to live with the emotional scars for the rest of their lives, for they had been forced to do things no child should ever have to do.

The only ‘crime they committed was being born at the wrong time,in the wrong place and sometimes to the wrong parents.

Following are pictures of some the Children of WWII, some of these images may be distressing but I feel it is important to show them.Th picture above is of a German child playing with abandoned weapons, Berlin, Germany, 1945.
