    These artists have a used a collaboration of things to tell the story of the youngest victims of Nazi terror, such as vintage toys, archive magazines, videos, pictures, music and even newspapers. These are the stories of those who survived with the help of others; they are stories about the strength and resolve of children; and most astonishing, these are stories not yet heard about the Holocaust. If you are interested in stories from this abominable period in our history, I'd highly recommend this book. Many of this children having stayed in contact with their parents through writing letters ,came to an understanding, as the years past, why these letters ceased to come. Their parents stayed behind in often desperate circumstances in spite of huge pressures to force their emigra tion because of the difficulty of finding a country that allowed them entry. Once these children were settled in with their foster families, some happily and some not so happily, their real parents, out of sheer desperation, often exerted a lot of pressure on them through letters to find them sponsors and work in England as well.

    It is both an astonishing insight into a remarkable moment of history and a timely reminder of how welcoming our country has been in the past to those who need welcome, shelter and hope. It is poignantly told in the words of those directly involved. As Judi Dench narrates, German policy in was to force Jewish emigration. These now grown children tell of their turbulent and traumatic experiences of having a death threat over their families and of their separation from their parents in the era of What we do matters and educating ourselves about the history is key Highly recommended for public and academic libraries and essential for special Holocaust collections.

Into the Arms of Strangers book

It contains stories in their own words from the child survivors, rescuers, parents, and foster parents. This book is a companion to the September documentary film of the same name. What really touched me was a farewell letter from a mother to her daughter, written just before she was sent to a concentration camp.

The editors wisely remain in the background, allowing the survivor testimony to shine through.

Into The Arms Of Strangers (PG)

Most of the children never saw their families again. It was a lot of work he admits, and the job had a benefit as for most people it was easy to take a child than to take a grown up.

Most were in these foster homes, or a succession of foster homes, for years, until the war ended in Synopsis Between December and the outbreak of war in Augustsome 10, children, the vast majority of them Jews, from Germany, Austria, Poland, and Czechoslovakia were evacuated to Great Britain.

There is also the excellent terse introduction by David Cesarani which gives the historical context. Too nervous to meet them at the train station, she goes back to her foster home to make them tea.

What we do matters and educating ourselves about the history is key Into the Arms of Strangers recounts the remarkable story of this rescue operation, known as the Kindertransport, and its dramatic impact on the lives of the children who were saved.

The tears for me came when the documentary started to read the letters that had been both written and sent between the parents and their children, and suddenly I remembered all the little letters I used to write to my mother and father, whether it was mothers or fathers day.

Showing the extensive research that went into the developing of this idea before it was constructed. Parents would register for this and these registrations would be communicated to authorities in England and in turn broadcast to England's citizens, in the hopes of finding foster parents.

One woman recalls how her father walked along the train with her until he subverted this trope by actually pulling her out the window; she spent the war in concentration camps as a result. They recount, in harrowing detail, the effects of the Nazi's reign of terror, the horror of Kristallnacht, the agonizing decision by the parents to send their children away, the journey, the difficulties of adjustment in Britain, the outbreak of war, and the children's tragic discovery afterward that most of their parents had perished in concentration camps.Buy Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport by Mark Jonathan Harris (Editor), Deborah Oppenheimer (Editor) online at Alibris.
