  • Deeply touching

    I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes stories connected to WWII. I learned a lot about the kinder transport during this time. It kept me on the edge of my seat, wondering what would happen next and feeling disturbed about the whole situation.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Keep reading

    I found this book very hard to get into but, once the pattern became clear, it was a compelling read. As time passes it becomes more important than ever that the stories of these brave people, including the parents who let their children go in order to save them, should not be lost. This is highly recommended for younger generations who might not appreciate the stresses that others went through all those years ago.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Very sad tale told very well

    I found the subject of this book very sad and depressing, but the Jewish and gentile families who saw no way out except to send their children away to another country to give them a chance at a future life. All the history happened and the author wrote the tale into and around it, sad, but very readable. The children journeys were very dangerous and tense but are probably very true to what it was like.

  • Gripping story

    I was on the edge of my seat for much of this book. It is an engrossing, yet horrifying, read. Reading about family life in prewar Vienna and then how it changed after the Nazis marched in was terrifying. I was touched and intrigued by the great work of Auntie Truus and her British counterparts in getting so many children out of Austria and the Netherlands to new lives in England. Altogether. This book is a well-written and articulate account of a brave and wonderful movement that saved the lives of hundreds of children during World War II.

    Thanks for your feedback!
