50 Children

“The new book, ’50 Children’ tells the remarkable story of two Philadelphia-area Jews who, at the dawn of World War II, went to extraordinary lengths fighting red tape on both sides of the Atlantic to save the lives of children on the brink of the Holocaust in Europe.” – Jordan Hoffman, Times of Israel

The book is the more detailed and expanded companion to the HBO documentary “50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mr. and Mrs. Kraus”. You can read an interview with the author and documentary film-maker about the subject here: New book explores 50 children rescued from Nazis by US Jews | The Times of Israel
