Summary"In January 1939, brothers Benno and Heinz, then just 9 and 13 years old, were put on a train departing Nazi Germany, in a desperate bid by their parents to send them to safety. What follows is a deeply moving account of sacrifice and loss, of courage and hope, as Benno recalls his harrowing journey across a continent on the brink of war. From Berlin to Amsterdam to London and, finally, to Toronto, this is the true story of a remarkable Canadian." Back cover
