Anita was six when she said good bye to her mom. She was crying on a train during her trip from Berlin to Holland. Her dad didn’t know she was leaving Germany. She felt alone, but she wasn’t. She was part of a group of European Jewish children who boarded a ferry in Holland on their way to England. Hoffer said most of the children were too young to understand that they had been saved from Adolf Hitler.
