Work In Progress


Let me introduce you to my work in progress. I am writing a historical fictionalized account based on the Kindertransport. The Kindertransport was a program arranged by a group of individuals in Britian. The purpose was to rescue children, mainly Jewish, from almost certain death at the hands of the Nazis. The transports took place in 1938-39, and had to stop when war was declared. In all, approximately 10,000 children were rescued from Germany, Austria, Poland and Czechoslovakia, all of whom survived the atrocities of war. They came to be know as "The 10,000 That Hitler Missed."

The book focuses on the story of an 8 year old Jewish girl from Berlin, who is taken to live with a family in London. Many emotions surface as life goes on against the background of war and separation. What will happen to family left behind? How will she be treated by her foster family? And will she again face evacuation and be sent away from her new 'family'? What will happen in the post-war years? Is there hope in the midst of heartbreak? Stay tuned as this dramatic story unfolds.
