Book Review: Escaping the Nazis on the Kindertransport

Escaping the Nazis on the Kindertransport

by Emma Carlson Berne


Capstone Press
Middle Grade, Children’s Nonfiction

Pub Date 01 Feb 2017

I was given a copy of Escaping the Nazi’s on the Kindertransport through the publisher and their partnership with Netgalley in exchange for my honest review which is as follows:

This book tells the stories of Children who escaped the Nazis in their own words through poetry, and prose and through photograps.  It also shows us that the first Kindertransport arrived in Harwich England on December, 2.1938 and it carried 200 Children from a Jewish Orphanage in Berlin.  The last Transport from Germany left on September 1st 1939 and the last transport from the Netherlands left on May.14.1940.

Britain agreed to allow Jewish Children in, but no parents only those seventeen and younger would be given the help they needed to escape the Nazi’s.   Children would face  separation from their families and many or most would never see their families again.

Escape the Nazis at Kindertransport highlights a few stories of the hundreds that escaped on the Kindertransports. 

This book is a great teaching tool for teaching those in the Middle Grades about the Holocaust and the Kindertransports.

Five out of five stars

Happy Reading.
