As the Second World War loomed, religious and governmental organizations brought nearly 10,000 Jewish children from Nazi-occupied territories to Britain. Drawing on interviews, journals and articles, this ground-breaking book reveals the people and politics behind the evacuation, and the experience of the children themselves, including their struggles to adjust to an unfamiliar society, often after the loss of their entire families. It also provides a unique account of the second wave of Kindertransport that rescued young Holocaust survivors in 1945.
