Overview
This forthright memoir is based on the author's experiences as a child evacuee from the East End of London during World War Two. Kitty is not a child from the Kindertransport, but a Jewish Londoner who is evacuated along with the rest of London's children to the safety of the British countryside. But after lodging in a series of foster homes, she decides that not even the imminent threat of Nazi bombs can keep her away from her Mum and Uncle Yudi in London. A new epilogue brings the story up to war's end and the historic victory celebration outside Buckingham Palace. Praise for I'm Not Going Back "Kitty recounts life in a country village under the thumb of a dour and cold taskmaster. She is a spirited, determined youngster whose mind is set upon returning to London . . . . She is a very strong and engaging character, even at her young age." - Jewish Book World "The details are absorbing . . . Kitty gets completely inside her young personality" - London Jewish Chronicle "Like a friend telling you about her experiences over coffee." - Marcia Weiss Posner, Association of Jewish Libraries "At each stage in her] full life, Ms Wintrob has displayed the same spunk and spirit she did as a 10-year-old girl forced to leave her Jewish working-class home with no indication where she was going or when she would be back." - National Post (Toronto)
