Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Wilfrid B. Israel (11 July, 1899 - 1 June, 1943) was a German-born Jew who played an important role in the Kindertransport and the rescue of Jews in the Holocaust. He was killed when his plane was shot down by the Nazis.Wilfrid Israel's family owned Israel's Department Store in Berlin, one of the largest chain stores in pre-World War II Germany. In 1938, the store was ransacked during Kristallnacht violence perpetrated by Nazi Party supporters. Following the takeover of the store, Israel, who had run the business with his brother, fled to England. In the summer of 1939, Israel took up a research position at Balliol College, Oxford. From there, he tried to establish contact with the German underground through Sir Stafford Cripps, Britain's foreign minister, and organized ship transports for Jewish children escaping from Nazi-occupied Europe.
