The article presents the narratives of seven women artists from around the world. They reveal what it was like to be a child during World War II and its aftermath, from bombardments, freezing cold, and searching for food, to playing in the ruins and being sung back to life. Sparked by the bombing of Iraq and the artists' distress at what the Iraqi children had to endure, they decided to create an art exhibit and tell their stories.
