Synopsis: With images of some of the vast collection of communications, letters and memoranda, & photos & maps, this book shows the dramatic, far-reaching efforts associated with the rescue of the Previous Rebbe and his family from war-torn Europe.

About the Author: Mrs. Rachel Altein, noted educator and English editor emeritus of The Yiddishe Heim, is the daughter of Rabbi Yisrael Jacobson, who was the executive director of Agudas Chasidei Chabad of the United States during the historic events recounted in this book. Mrs. Altein served alongside her husband, Rabbi M. Altein, in the Bronx for over half a century. With the encouragement of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, Mrs. Altein compiled this book from her father’s comprehensive archive of correspondence, telegrams, and documents relating to this time. The author now lives in Betar Ilit, Israel.
