Kindertransport: A Rescued Child

Mimi Ormond’s book describes her escape from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia in the months just before World War II. “My experience during those six years of the War, 1939-1945, formed much of my personality, shaped who I was to become, and inspired me to write this story that continues to dominate my thoughts and emotions to this day.”
