Summary, etc.:
"As German bombs rained over England during World War II, British parents by the thousands sent their children out of the country to avoid harm's way. In September 1940, passenger liner SS City of Benares set sail for Canada with one hundred children on board. When the warships escorting the Benares departed, a German submarine torpedoed what became known as the Children's Ship. Out of tragedy, ordinary people became heroes. This is their story."-
