50 Children: One Ordinary American Couple's Extraordinary Rescue Mission into the Heart of Nazi Germany

Usual americans.
Fifty blameless Lives.
One Unforgettable Journey.

In early 1939, few americans have been brooding about the darkening typhoon clouds over Europe. Nor did they've got a lot sympathy for the turning out to be variety of Jewish households that have been more and more threatened and brutalized by way of Adolf Hitler's rules in Germany and Austria.

But one usual American couple determined that whatever needed to be performed. regardless of overwhelming obstacles—both in Europe and within the United States—Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus made a daring and extraordinary determination to commute into Nazi Germany as a way to shop a bunch of Jewish children.

Fewer than 1,200 unaccompanied little ones have been allowed into the USA in the course of the complete Holocaust, during which 1. five million kids perished. The fifty childrens stored through the Krauses grew to become out to be the one greatest crew of unaccompanied teenagers delivered to America.

Example text

Thus wherever we turn it is the idea of the Jew which seems to be the essential thing. It has become evident that no external factor can induce anti‐Semitism in the anti‐Semite. Anti‐Semitism is a free and total choice of oneself, a comprehensive attitude that one adopts not only toward Jews, but toward men in general, toward history and society; it is at one and the same time a passion and a conception of the world. No doubt in the case of a given anti‐Semite certain characteristics will be more marked than in another.

18 We must not confuse this precedence the anti‐Semite enjoys by virtue of his principles with individual merit. The anti‐Semite is not too anxious to possess individual merit. Merit has to be sought, just like truth; it is discovered with difficulty; one must deserve it. Once acquired, it is perpetually in question: a false step, an error, and it flies away. Without respite, from the beginning of our lives to the end, we are responsible for what merit we enjoy. Now the anti‐Semite flees responsibility as he flees his own consciousness, and choosing for his personality the permanence of rock, he chooses for his morality a scale of petrified values.

But since Evil, to the anti‐ Semite, is incarnated in unarmed and harmless men, the latter never finds himself under the painful necessity of being heroic. It is fun to be an anti‐Semite. One can beat and torture Jews without fear. At most they can appeal to the laws of the Republic, but those laws are not too rigorous. 33 The sadistic attraction that the anti‐Semite feels toward the Jew is so strong that it is not unusual to see one of these sworn enemies of Israel surround himself with Jewish friends.
