Children Writing the Holocaust is an analysis of a wide range of works written for adult readers, by and about child survivors and victims of the Holocaust. The book adopts a narrative approach in examining which features these texts hold in common, and whether works about the Holocaust from a child's viewpoint constitute a discrete literary genre.

The writers analysed range from Anne Frank and Saul Friedlander, to Ida Fink, Louis Begley and W. G. Sebald; topics covered include the Kindertransport experience, exile to Siberia, living in hiding, Jewish children masquerading as Christian, and ghetto diaries. The texts discussed here use a variety of distinctive techniques, including choral narration, split-time and fragmentary narrative, in order to represent historical atrocity through the eyes of children.
