    A story of Love and Survival

    This book was in incredible. The author took events she researched that actually happened in real life and wove a fantastic story around them. The Kinder transports that smuggled out Jewish children , the prison camp Terezin allowed the prisoners to play music, and the hijack of planes from Russian occupied territory to save RAF piloted and their families. She has also pulled from the experiences of others for the time spent in the concentration camps. This is a book that tells the story of so many intertwined with each other in a way that is easily read. Pam, the diplomat's wife in London whose work on the Kinder transports was helpful in placing many Jewish children in English homes. Her son Will later joins the RAF and spends time in a POW camp in Germany. Pam takes one of the girls Miriam in from the kinder transport. Pam, Will, and Miriam are prominent characters in the story. Eva a Jewish girl in Prague Czechoslovakia studying music. She is attacked one night coming home from music lessons by a German soldier in Hitler youth. She is later married to Josef and they have a daughter named Miriam which she later sends to England on the Kinder transport. Later in the story Joseph and Eva are sent to the concentration camp Terezin. They are further deported to Auschwitz. Eva and Joseph are prominent characters in the story. The story of a Jewish girl Hana who also plays a prominent part in the story, I won't say more about Hana except she was also at Terezin. Her story will be told in the book. The characters and events are sad, but they are realistically portrayed. The story is realistic and believable. Can you imagine the anguish of sending a young child on a journey to another country not knowing when or if you would ever see her again? Can you feel the fears of the mother when she sees her only son off to war, or the feeling she has when she gets the news he is missing in action. How would you feel I'd you were the young child, miles and miles on a train with strangers, then boarding a huge boat an d finally arriving in a country where no one spoke your language. Such are the horrible faces of war. This book is a must read. I highly recommend you plan on reading for a while, because once you star you will not want to stop until the last page is read. My thanks to Gill Thompson, Headline Publishing, and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advance copy of the book.

    A different perspective than most WWII books.

    The trials children went through in WWII such as families broken apart, young teens trying to fend for themselves and children confused by being sent to other countries for their safety are examined. While this book is fictional, the story is full of emotion and awe. It brings the strength of people dealing with the Reich trying to annihilate their families and themselves. Dying and inhumane treatment was, of course, everywhere. The main characters are found in a Jewish mother who sends her young daughter away to protect her; and the family that takes her in. The Child on Platform One transports the reader to Ukraine in the early 1940s. I t would require a hardened heart not to be affected by this novel. That said, it is not written with graphic details which enhances its impact and the tragedy of the times. This book is highly recommended. The tight writing and obvious knowledge of the author makes it a book you must read. I received an ARC from Headline Review through NetGalley. This in no way affects my opinion or rating of this book. I am voluntarily submitting this review and have no obligation to do so.
