Anne Frank is one of the most famous teenagers in history. Her diary has been translated into over 67 languages and has captured the hearts of readers across the world. But her story alone does not document the complexity of World War II and the Holocaust. Parallel Journeys: World War II and the Holocaust tells the stories of forty teenagers who were witnesses, participants, and often victims of this brutal conflict.

Main gallery of "Parallel Journeys"

Elie Wiesel (Auschwitz surviver and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize), members of the White Rose resistance group, and Traudl Junge (Adolf Hitler's personal secretary) are featured alongside lesser-known teens and young adults who survived the concentrations camps, hid from the Nazis, led rescue efforts, served as soldiers, remained on the home front, or aided individuals who were targets of the Nazi oppression.
