book-cover-image-50-children50 Children: One Ordinary American Couple’s Extraordinary Rescue Mission into the Heart of Nazi Germany –┬áIn early 1939, America’s rigid immigration laws made it virtually impossible for European Jews to seek safe haven in the United States.

Yet one brave Jewish couple from Philadelphia refused to silently stand by. Risking their own safety, Gilbert Kraus, a successful lawyer, and his stylish wife, Eleanor, traveled to Nazi-controlled Vienna and Berlin to save fifty Jewish children.

50 Children is a remarkable tale of personal courage and triumphant heroism that offers a fresh, unique insight into a critical period of history.
