Reviews

Publishers Weekly

"...Berne poignantly recounts the true stories of seven children who fled Nazi Germany and Austria via the Kindertransport. They were just a few of the thousands of young Jewish refugees who traveled without parents aboard boats, trains, and planes to live with families in England. An explanatory narrative provides context and a sense of immediacy. . . .a clear and concise introduction to the Holocaust." - Publishers Weekly

Booklist - Erin Anderson

"Using their memoirs, photographs, poems, and artifacts, Berne captures the bittersweet nature of the story, as 10,000 children of all ages boarded trains to freedom. Since the stories are told from the perspective of the young people who lived them, middle-grade readers will find the narrative engaging and resonant. Readers don’t learn the fate of the evacuees or their families until the very last pages, heightening the emotional connection to main characters. The Kindertransport is a rare bright spot in one of the bleakest events in human history, and it is impossible to remain indifferent about the outcome of these intensely hopeful stories." - Booklist

Kirkus Reviews

"In their own words, the survivors poignantly recount the pain of leaving loved ones behind and their experiences as refugees. The final chapter briefly explains what became of each survivor after the war. That Berne tells this story in language that makes it accessible to middle graders is no small feat, and though it is a brief account, it does its best to encompass the enormity of the Holocaust. . . .A powerful, insightful perspective on the Holocaust." - Kirkus Reviews
