Hungarian language hardback Eastern Europe.

About warring groups of children from two schools, with German economic crisis in the background. Kastner, a pacifist, remained in Germany, although he was viewed with suspicion by the Nazis and his books were burned in 1933. This was his last book before the Nazis came to power. Interesting that this book was chosen for this publisher's list in the Hungary of 1934. The title is not a literal translation.
