schema:description"In the first section, the children recall their lives before the war (most were well off). They discuss their memories of when the war broke out, the arrival of the Germans and the Russians, and their journeys into and experiences in, exile. We also hear them talk about the increasingly desperate conditions after the Sikorski Agreement allowed them to leave the work camps, and the ways many of them coped as orphans."@en

The interviewees - all Polish children - tell of their experiences during the war. Grynberg has not used the traditional form, but rather turns the voices of the children into one large "choral" group. This technique gives the reader the impression of overwhelming sameness while paradoxically featuring the subtle differences in the children's experiences."@en
