As the Holocaust loomed on the horizon, Britain rushed to evacuate nearly 10,000 Jewish children from the Nazi occupied territories in the months leading up to the outbreak of the Second World War. Through the unprecedented cooperation of religious and governmental organizations, the Kindertransport spared these children from the terror of the Third Reich and provided them with host families throughout Britain. 'Children's Exodus' offers an in-depth look at the people and politics behind the various chains of rescue as well as the personal narratives of the children who left everything behind
