This talk will outline the nature of the Kindertransport scheme, which brought Jewish children escaping Nazi persecution to Britain. The talk will also consider the limitations of the scheme, and the experiences of some of the Kinder. It will be illustrated with materials from the Wiener Library’s unique collections. The library has a wealth of original sources relating to the rise of the Nazis, the Holocaust and refugees, including some of the Red Cross telegrams that were often the only means of communication between child refugees and the rest of their families.Find out more »
