    "It's so interesting to read what these people went through, and you can't help but wonder if you would have been strong enough to survive the same things. I think it's a real testiment to what a person can endure and come back from. This was a great read if you're interested in the struggles of those impacted by WWII."

    "There are so many books on World War II, with a great share of them related to the Nazis and the evils they perpetrated. It's so refreshing to find the relatively few books that document how Jews were saved from almost certain death under Hitler. This is one of those books -- but it's even better because it's a heart-warming real-life story about how some Jewish children were saved. "

    "I was looking for a good book to read about Kindertransport. The one that caught my eye as a good read was Remember Me: A Search for Refuge in Wartime Britain. It delves into how Marianne has escaped on one of the first kindertransporte organized to take Jewish children out of Germany to safety in Britain."

    "This work of fiction is too unrealistic. The authors let their imaginations run wild but presented it as real. These dark themes are unsuitable for children, who might be confused into believing such a story."

    "The Kindertransport was one of the most important times in human history. Jews were facing mass genocidal extinction and due to that many children ended being refugees. You can't abandon children. You can't leave them off to die alone and hungry. So these kindertransport efforts were to help these refugees find places to live outside of Germany. This book does a great job of retelling the time of that era and the fear of all those involved. "

    "Being a kid during WWII was difficult, being a kid on the run from the Holocaust must have been a nightmare. Child of Our Time takes a look at this time, and really puts the right amount of emotion on the page. Not overly preachy or dramatic, but it really encapsulates that time for those kids."

    "Kinder transport was when Britain made all children under 17 leave because the Nazi's were trying to hurt or even kill Jews at that time. So, I think The Tiger in the Attic is good book to read about if you want to know more about Kinder transport"

    "This seems like a new facet of WWII that I've never heard about, I really enjoy learning about this topic. the only problem is that from what I looked at this seems like a very dry novel that reads like a history book."
