One of my first vivid recollections is being buried in the snow by three of Hitlers young hooligans So begins the remarkable story of a six-year old girl who, in the winter of 1938, is uprooted overnight from her rabbinic family in Vienna, and sent on the Kindertransport to England. Eventually she finds herself in the village of Shefford as part of Rabbi Schonfelds Jewish day school which had been evacuated there in its entirety at the outbreak of World War II. At the end of the war, Frieda returns to London where she and her fellow refugees exist in a state of animated suspension while waiting to hear news of their parents fate.
