This is a poignant story, made more so by the betrayal of trust by the people who took the child into their home. For anyone with an interest in the Jewish children rescued from Germany in the 1930s, this is essential reading. It gives a deep insight into the circumstances which made their departure necessary and the traumas which they suffered in being uprooted from their homeland.

I ordered this book to find out more about the authors challenging journey into the truth of her own identity. I opened the book late afternoon and switched off my light in the early hours having read it from cover to cover. It is a tour de force on the subject of triumph in the face of adversity. The warmth and humanity of the author is evident from the first Chapter, and it's no wonder that Rosa/Susi chose a psychotherapeutic career following her year in health and nursing. I have no doubt she will be an excellent empathic, acceptant, warm listener to all her clients.

It's after midnight, and I've just put "Rosa's Child" down at the end of 159 tumultuous pages. It is the true story of a British raised German woman who escaped from Munich on the kindertransport in 1939, and her subsequent search for self and family. Readable, gripping, heart-felt and heart-rending, it is an astonishing story of fortitude, regret, anger, forgiveness and survival. Read it.

Having lodged with the vicar in this book, and met 'Rosa's child' several times, I was truly shocked and amazed to read this story!
