What`s it like to grow up during war? To be a victim of violence or exiled from your homeland, culture, family, and even your own memories? As a teenager, Elisabeth Breslav (columnist and feature writer for The Villager) survived the Hunger Winter in Nazi-occupied Holland. Marnie Mueller (author of three novels) was born in a Japanese internment camp to activist parents. And David Griffith (author of “A Good War is Hard to Find“) came of age during the Gulf War.
