Description: The "Kindertransport", a plan which allowed the admission of young German Jewish children and teenagers into Britain, saved 10,000 lives. This is an account of what it was like to grow up Jewish in Nazi Germany, to escape fear and danger and also leave family and friends behind, perhaps forever.
Synopsis: In November 1938, international public opinion was shocked by the news of Kristallnacht - the anti-Jewish pogrom that led to the burning of synagogues and the first mass arrests of Jewish men. Twelve days later, the British government implemented an imaginative plan, known informally as the Kindertransport, which allowed many children to leave the horrors of the Nazi regime and find temporary refuge within British families and hostels. By the time war was declared in September 1939, this brave undertaking had saved 10,000 lives. This book, based on the Academy Award-winning feature documentary of the same name, reveals what it was like to grow up in the shadow of the Nazi threat, to escape danger and fear, but also to leave family and friends, perhaps for ever. It is poignantly told in the words of those directly involved.
