WE HAD TO BE BRAVE Escaping the Nazis on the Kindertransport

by | Read by Lauren Irwin

Children Ages 8+ • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Lauren Irwin immerses listeners in the true stories of Jewish children in the 1930s who fled to safety on the Kindertransport (Children's Transport), leaving their parents behind in Nazi Germany. In her distinguished English accent, enhanced by authentic-sounding pronunciations of German names and places, Irwin relays the history of the Nazi party's systematic persecution of the Jews, leading up to Kristallnacht and the mobilization to send the children away to safety. Her formal tone does not hide the terrors the Jewish families faced or the heartbreaking trauma of the child refugees who had to relocate to unfamiliar surroundings. While the narrative is dense with details, chime tones in the recording help separate factual sidebars from the personal memoirs of the survivors.
