Full of fascinating, poignant material, and is carefully written and skillfully argued. The discovery of the Polenaktion Kinder files are an absolute treasure, giving us something that would otherwise be lost."
Rebecca Clifford, author of Commemorating the Holocaust
Throughout the book, Jennifer Craig-Norton demonstrates an extremely sensitive, nuanced approach to her source material, and its importance to Kinder and their families. She offers an important and convincing counter to redemptive accounts of the Kindertransport that have dominated both secondary literature and the popular imagination."
Shirli Gilbert, author of From Things Lost: Forgotten Letters and the Legacy of the Holocaust
