Brand New Book

In the summer of 1944 a group of Jewish prisoners were sent by train to Palestine in exchange for a group of German nationals who had been held as internees in the Middle East. The Jewish prisoners were thus saved from the horrors of the Holocaust, and this book tells the remarkable story of how these events came to pass.

From the inside front fly leaf: How did this journey into freedom come about? Who organised it and how were the participants chosen? Based on meticulous research as well as interviews with those involved, this book traces the complex web of negoatiation between the British, the Swiss and the Germans which made this journey possible.
