Meg Waite Clayton with Julia Flynn Siler – The Last Train to Londone
51 Tamal Vista Boulevard
In 1936, the Nazi are little more than loud, brutish bores to fifteen-year old Stephan Neuman, the son of a wealthy and influential Jewish family. Stephan’s best friend and companion is the brilliant Žofie-Helene, a Christian girl whose mother edits a progressive, anti-Nazi newspaper. But the two adolescents’ carefree innocence is shattered when the Nazis’ take control. The Last Train to London by Meg Waite Clayton is a pre-World War II-era story centering on the Kindertransports that carried thousands of children out of Nazi-occupied Europe.
