Steven Pressman talked about his book, 50 Children: One Ordinary American Couple’s Extraordinary Rescue Mission into the Heart of Nazi Germany, in which he recounts the efforts of Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus to rescue fifty Jewish children from Nazi-controlled Vienna in 1939. The couple, from Philadelphia, had become exasperated with U.S. immigration laws and was determined to allow entry to the children. The author, whose wife is the granddaughter of the Kraus', utilized personal papers and archival information to report on the rescue. Steven Pressman spoke at Book Passage Bookstore in Corte Madera, California. close
