Traveling Between The Lines
Europe In 1938: The Trip Journal Of John F. Randolph And His Daughter's Response
BY REBECCA MCBRIDE
Quaker author Rebecca McBride writes in response to her father's journal of a trip taken by her parents to Europe in 1938, one year before the start of World War II. John F. Randolph, 34, a mathematician, and his wife Margaret, 27, traveled by train, rented bicycles, and slept in youth hostels--a typical tour in an atypical time. Knowing what took place in Germany in 1938 and what would follow throughout Europe, the author began to research the historical context for the trip and ask, how much did they know, and what did they see? The book combines her father's trip journal with her historical commentary, including references to Quakers and AFSC involvement in helping Jewish refugees.
