In a generation of disaster, when the sky darkened over Europe and the whole world there were some glimpses of light. One of those was the kindertransport, a rescue operation of nearly 10,000 children, mostly Jewish, from Nazi Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia.
This was made possible by the vigorous actions of people and organizations, Jews and non Jews, who in 1938, after “Krystalnacht”, recruited the Britis Parliament to act and enable this
rescue operation. The children who had to be separated from their families – survived.
George Shefi was one of these children. In July 1939, when he was not yet eight years old, his loving mother put him on a rescue train that took him from Berlin to freedom. He did not know that waving good-bye to his mother would be the last time he would see her. She did not survive.
This book brings to you the story of the “Kindertransport” through a personal and breathtaking story. This is a life story which proves the power of optimism and the way of
fate; how a decision with no apparent rational explanation, brings about exciting discoveries and changes.
