Summary"In the nine months before World War II, nearly ten thousand Jewish children were transported out of Nazi Europe and sent to safety in Britain. The mission, known as the Kindertransport, saved these children from almost certain death at the hands of the Nazis. This is the story of the children's rescue." —Back cover
