Meintji Author: Wilhelmina Wolff. Paperback. Innocence in the midst of war. Meintje is a child of World War II living in Holland and in 1939 she is four years old. This poignant book relives memories during the war from that child's point of view. Enchanting and innocent, but horrific as one realises the import of the background to devastating incidents and events. The Gestapo, starvation, bombing, the Resistance Movement. All told from the memories of innocent childhood right through to the Liberation in 1945. A beautiful exquisite book.
