Hop Pickers’ Holiday
Illustrated by Clare Curtis
Gerda Mayer was eleven when she came to england as a refugee from Czechoslovakia just before the outbreak of war.
Although many of her poems hark back to the tragedies of that time, others take a clear, fresh and unblinking look at her adopted country.
