In the months prior to WWII, nearly 10,000 Jewish children were evacuated out of Germany, Poland, Austria, and Czechoslovakia and sent to safety in England, without their parents. Privately funded by British citizens, the Kindertransport organizers successfully placed these children in English foster homes. Nearly every parent who sent their child on the train told them they would soon follow, but of course, very few were able, as war was declared not long after and Jews were rounded up and sent to concentration camps.
Though Zinser's novel is a work of fiction, her characters represent a collection of actual Kindertransport children. Many of the events depicted in the novel are based on actual events that took place during the time. While this novel is intended for a young adult audience, it's a story sure to capture the hearts of readers age 12 and up.
"I could not put this book down. These children's stories take an unbelievable journey through gut-wrenching sorrow and horrifying pain, yet explodes with their raw courage and brute determination to survive and hang on to hope. This book is inspirational, informative, interesting and should be read by all ages." - Charles J. Weber, Weber Communications, Los Angeles.
