Beyond the Kindertransport

"One of my first vivid recollections is being buried in the snow by three of Hitler's young hooligans…" So begins the remarkable story of a six-year old girl who, in the winter of 1938, is uprooted overnight from her rabbinic family in Vienna, and sent on the Kindertransport to England.
We accompany little Frieda to London, where she is forced to desecrate the Sabbath for the first time in her young life. The Blitz forces the large-scale evacuation of children from London, and Frieda winds up in Thorpe, living with a kind, upper-class gentile couple who know nothing of Jews or Judaism.
Frieda's older brother and sister "rescue" her, whisking her away secretly to the little village of Shefford, where Rabbi Schonfeld and his headmistress, the incomparable Dr. Judith Grunfeld, have established a school and dormitory for children from religious Jewish homes.
At the end of the war, Frieda returns to London where she and her fellow refugees exist in a state of animated suspension while awaiting news of their parents' fate.
