Synopsis

Kindertransport by Ant Stones, Joyce Bentley

Can you imagine leaving your home and your family, and moving hundreds of miles away, to a different country, because it was too dangerous to stay in your own country? During World War II, this was the situation millions of people, many of them children, faced. Stories of World War II: Kindertransport tells the story of the Jewish children who left Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland without their parents in 1939, before the outbreak of World War II, and came to Britain on the Kindertransport. The book explains what happened, why they had to leave their homes, how they came to Britain and what happened to them when they arrived. Much of the material on which the book is based comes from The National Archives, and so is made up of government documents and reports from during World War II. This gives the book a real grounding in fact and in history - it is a true account of what life was like for the children of the Kindertransport during World War II. The other book in the series, Stories of World War II: Evacuation, tells the story of children evacuated from British towns and cities to the countryside during World War II.
