50 Children: One Ordinary American Couple's Extraordinary Rescue Mission into the Heart of Nazi by Steven Pressman

Thursday • October 8 • 6:30pm

Mill Creek store

From history to memoir to cultural criticism—The Odd Shelf Book Club meets the second Thursday of each month at 6:30pm to discuss the best in new and classic non-fiction.

Two Ordinary Americans. Fifty Innocent Lives. One Unforgettable Journey. In early 1939, few Americans were thinking about the darkening storm clouds over Europe. Nor did they have much sympathy for the growing number of Jewish families increasingly threatened and brutalized by Adolf Hitler. But one ordinary American couple decided that something had to be done. Despite overwhelming dangers and obstacles, Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus made a bold and unprecedented decision to travel into Nazi Germany in an effort to save a group of Jewish children. This is their story.
