Six from Leipzig: Kindertransport and the Cambridge Refugee Children’s Committee

by Dubrovsky, Gertrude; Published by Vallentine Mitchell & Co Ltd (2003)

Six cousins from Leipzig, aged 7 months to 14 years, were among the 2,000 Kindertransport children who arrived in Cambridge. The story of these children brings to life the issues faced by all who travelled on the Kindertransports. Six from Leipzig puts the subject into historical perspective and will be invaluable to those who want to know how rescue was organized, by whom, and under what circumstances. It also emphasizes the role played by women in the rescue of these children, and in running refugee children’s committees; a fact that has not received the attention that it deserves.
