She also discusses her journey to England with a children's transport in 1939 and her life in England, where she remained for several years.

He relates his struggle for the rights of the Danzig Jews; the successful WJC campaign in 1938 against the anti-Semitic government of Romania; his responsibility to inform WJC officials in Geneva and New York of wartime atrocities; and his sources of information about Nazi medical experiments, deportations, and plans for total extermination in summer 1942. He describes the unwillingness of the allied governments, the Vatican, and the Red Cross to accept or publicize Hitler's plans; his views on the reason for this and for the Allied failure to bomb Auschwitz; and his efforts to solicit money for rescue attempts.
