Places of Greater Safety

Book - 1993
Rate this:
Hilda Hollingsworth's story of the World War II evacuation of nearly 1 million children from London's big cities to so called Places of Greater safety just prior to the Nazi blitz offers a look at the Christian side of the holocaust. Hilda and her sisters lived with a series of foster families in the relative safety of Wales, some kind, some punitive. The result is a testament to the courage and ingenuity of young people who meet with the kindness of strangers and child abuse. One of the best books ever written about wartime Britain from a child's perspective. It can be read alongside The Diary of Anne Frank.
