Books for Children of the World : The Story of Jella Lepman Hardback
Illustrated by Danlyn Iantorno
With the shortage of books for children in post-World War II Germany, Jella Lepman personally translated The Story of Ferdinand into German.
She then printed and distributed 30,000 copies to give to children on Christmas day.
She then enlisted the U.S. Army's help in furnishing a jeep and driver to travel around Germany collecting books for a children's library, with contributions from 20 international publishers.
