Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This important book tells the story of how ten thousand Jewish children were rescued out of Nazi Europe just before the outbreak of World War 2. They were saved by the Kindertransport — a rescue mission that transported the children (or Kinder) from Nazi-ruled countries to safety in Britain.

The book includes real-life accounts of the children and is illustrated with archival photographs, paintings of pre-war Nazi Germany by artist, Hans Jackson, and original art by the Kinder commemorating their rescue.

Synopsis:

This important book includes real-life accounts from some of the almost 10,000 children rescued over 70 years ago through the Kindertransport - trains that brought them from their homes and family at the beginning of WWII, to safety in Britain.

 

This book tells the story of the Kindertransport, and how ten thousand children were saved by brave people who took action in desperate times. The book is a compilation of survivors memories, illustrated with archival photos.
