When I Grow Up: The Lost Autobiographies of Six Yiddish Teenagers BY Kim Krimstein

bloomsbury publishing

Regular price $ 28.00

When I Grow Up is New Yorker cartoonist Ken Krimstein's new graphic nonfiction book, based on six of hundreds of newly discovered, never-before-published autobiographies of Eastern European Jewish teens on the brink of WWII--found in 2017 hidden in a Lithuanian church cellar.


These autobiographies, long thought destroyed by the Nazis, were written as entries for three competitions held in Eastern Europe in the 1930s, just before the horror of the Holocaust forever altered the lives of the young people who wrote them.
