The Rabbi in the Green Jacket

by Vivien and Deborah Samson

September 1939 Britain declares war against Nazi Germany. Jewish refugees, some lone children, make a desperate bid for freedom. Many never see their families again. The few that make it to Britain find new danger, bombing. They join the exodus of evacuees, including British-born Jews, to the relative safety of the Buckinghamshire countryside. Who is the mysterious rabbi seen as a symbol of hope, energy and life riding about on a motorbike and wearing a green jacket?

Please contact Vivien and Deborah for more information and to purchase a copy.
