    I just find it so terribly sad that these youngsters, regardless of nationality, were subjected to the horrors they endured.

    My Father was sent out at 12 years old to bring back shot down allied aircrew, from there Luftschutz/luftwaffe Helfer (Hamburg Firestorm) then Luftwaffe Flak and finally ground-fighting.

    Having been brought up in Australia, I would constantly stuff-up and disappoint him, but he always just shook his head and would say " Enjoy your childhood, for I never had one"

    Well, war is not for the kids and women. There were plenty on underage partisans in USSR and also underage deffenders of Berlin in 1945. I do not see anything good or heroic in it. Just wasted childhood and ruined lifes only because some politicians decided so.

    @Frundsberg, WAR is not only no good for children and women. WAR is not good for any human beeing.
    I would not describe Hitler or Stalin as politicians... thugs or butchers is a beter name for those inhuman figures.
