50 CHILDREN On Sale Today!

Journalist Steven Pressman's new book 50 Children: One Ordinary American Couple's Extraordinary Rescue Mission into the Heart of Nazi Germany is on sale today! Writer and director of the documentary of the same name, Pressman tells the astonishingly true story of an ordinary American couple's journey into Nazi-occupied Austria to rescue fifty Jewish children in 1939--the largest group of children brought to American during the Holocaust. Drawing from Eleanor Kraus's unpublished memoir, rare historical documents, and interviews with more than a dozen surviving children, and illustrated with period photographs, archival materials, and memorabilia, 50 Children is a remarkable tale of personal courage and triumphant heroism that offers a fresh, unique insight into a critical period of history.
