"'This is a thoroughly engaging and moving history of events which until now have been treated only partially, superficially, or largely biographically. It is a comprehensive historical overview and analysis of a remarkable, early chapter in the history of the Holocaust.' - Lionel Steiman, Former Professor of History, University of Manitoba 'As a Jewish child being persecuted by the Nazi government in Germany in the 1930s, I was fortunate that my parents put me on a Kindertransport to Great Britain. Vera K. Fast has written a comprehensive and well researched book leading up to and chronicling this historical rescue mission. I highly recommend it as serious reading of another aspect of the history of the Holocaust.' - Margaret Heller Goldberger, Chair of the Speakers Bureau of the Kindertransport Association and Member of the Board of Governors of B'nai B'rith International"

Reseña del editor:

In the months leading up to the outbreak of World War Two, Britain rushed to evacuate nearly 10,000 Jewish children from the Nazi occupied territories. Through the unprecedented cooperation of religious and governmental organizations, the Kindertransport spared thousands of Jewish children from the terror of the Third Reich and provided them with host families in Britain. "Children's Exodus" offers an in-depth look at the people and politics behind the various chains of rescue as well as the personal narratives of the children who left everything behind in the hope of finding safety. Drawing on unpublished interviews, journals, and articles, Vera K. Fast examines the religious and political tensions that emerged throughout the migration and at times threatened to bring operations to a halt. "Children's Exodus" captures the life-affirming stories of child refugees with vivid detail and examines the motivations - religious or otherwise - of the people that orchestrated one of the greatest rescue missions of all time.
