Saving Children From the Holocaust

The Kindertransport

Series: The Holocaust Through Primary Sources

By Ann Byers

“Who will look after me . . . and why can't we all go together?” Kurt Fuchel asked his father these questions, as the young boy prepared to embark on a journey to England . . . alone. Fuchel was one of ten thousand children who made this journey shortly before World War II began. In 1938, Jews searched for a way out of Germany. But anti-Jewish laws and nations unwilling to accept fleeing refugees made escape difficult or impossible. England’s effort to save the children effort came to be known as the Kindertransport, and author Ann Byers discusses the heroes who organized the transports and the children who were saved from the Holocaust.

". . . an excellent series to supplement a Holocaust collection. The series personalizes the Holocaust by presenting history through the eyes of the people who lived it . . . The series is a good introduction to the Holocaust and will encourage students of history to delve deeper."

VOYA, April 2012

"Author Ann Byers organized and wrote information that all children need to understand . . . This book is a must-read, with authentic pictures, documents and quotations."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, January 2012

". . . these titles illuminate events by quoting at length from personal narratives, which are set apart from the main texts as sidebars. Readers will gravitate to this approachable focus, and teachers may appreciate the way that quotes from primary sources are integrated into simple texts."

School Library Journal, Fall 2011

"This new series packs an emotional punch as it disseminates historical facts from multiple perspectives . . . These unique perspectives lend an authenticity and immediacy to these stories that can rarely be achieved through traditional nonfiction."
