Description

In honor of National Holocaust Remembrance Day, Books Inc. Opera Plaza presents former journalist Steven Pressman sharing 50 Children: One Ordinary American Couple's Extraordinary Rescue Mission Into the Heart of Nazi Germany. Based on the acclaimed HBO documentary--which Steven wrote, produced and directed--the book draws from Eleanor Kraus's unpublished memoir, rare historical documents, and interviews with more than a dozen of the surviving children. Complete with illustrations and period photographs, archival materials, and memorabilia, this is a remarkable tale of personal courage and triumphant heroism.
