Piles of Books


Virtual Reading Group Program

Between 1938 and the outbreak of World War II, almost 10,000 children, most of them Jewish, were sent by their parents from Germany to Britain.

This summer, the East Bay Holocaust Education Center (EBHEC) will sponsor a reading group which will read Meg Waite Clayton's book The Last Train to London about the Kindertransport.

Books may be purchased at Town Center Books in Pleasanton and Livermore, or loaned from the Pleasanton Library. The reading group will be run by Livermore resident and EBHEC Board Member Eileen Vergino and will be conducted via Zoom starting July 13.
