Kindertransport : A Lifelong Journey of Survival and Redemption: The Story of Ralph W. Mollerick, A Kind
by David H. Herschler




Overview -

Like many Jewish children in Nazi Germany, Rolf Wolfgang Mollerich found his world shattered by the violence of Kristallnacht. In the aftermath of that terrible night, England launched Kindertransport-a program to get as many children out of Nazi-controlled territory as possible.

In all, the Kindertransport saved almost ten thousand children, 75 percent of whom were Jewish. Rolf and his sister, Edith, were two of them, whisked away from Hamburg by train to Holland and then to England. Wolfgang was eight years old. He never saw his parents again.

Wolfgang's experience scarred him deeply and continued to affect him long after he immigrated to the United States, married, and built a successful career. His past was always there, making inner peace impossible and estranging him from his sister, his wife, and his own children.

Half a lifetime after his parents made their soul-shattering decision to let their children go, Wolfgang experienced an epiphany-a revelation that would change his life, offering him the personal redemption and meaning he desperately needed.

Heartrending but ultimately inspiring, Kindertransport: A Lifelong Journey of Survival and Redemption is an informal biography of a remarkable man-and a historical examination of the lifesaving Kindertransport program.
