If anything, I wish this book had been much longer and contain even more details. A moving, historic story for both adults and young people.

Kristallnacht
November 9, 1938

The Nazis gave the Jews no choice - either flee their homeland or die. Many families chose to send their children to live in England. The Levys were no different. They arranged for their children to be part of the Kindertransport operation: Little Ollie was sent away, by train, to far-off England, where she spoke not a word of the language, and knew no one.

This powerful autobiographical story shows a side of the war few children - or adults - have seen.
