Despite saving the lives of thousands of Jews, taking an integral role in the Kindertransport and working in partnership with the British intelligence, Wilfrid Israel is, for the most part, a forgotten hero. As the wealthy owner of one of Berlin’s largest department stores and an avid art collector, Israel was a high profile yet deeply enigmatic figure. Wilfrid Israel: The Essential Link explores not only Israel’s remarkable rescue operations but also the reasons they had been kept secret for so long.
