See the war through a completely different lens by reading this great book! This book is a journey into the rescue of 50 children from Nazi rule shortly before it became more common to send all Jews to concentration camps.
I've read many accounts of the war and the Holocaust, but never from this perspective and had never known that there was a time at the beginning where Nazis were allowing Jews to leave the country - though with enough restrictions and difficulties that it was still nearly impossible to do so.
I loved reading about how the children fared in America at the end as well!
Great book!
