From the Publisher:

1995 French edition, Sauver les Enfants from Liani Lévi, France

From the Back Cover:

"This testimony by Vivette Samuel is important not only because she describes dramatic events that took place during the occupation of France but also because she brings to light insufficiently known facts about an organization—the Œuvre de secours aux enfants (OSE)—whose devotion to human causes does honor to humanity. I confess that I read this book with a great deal of emotion, because I owe so much to the OSE. It was the OSE that, in June 1945, took charge of the four hundred "children of Buchenwald," [including me]."—Elie Wiesel
