Kindertransport

75th Anniversary to Commemorate the Kindertransport

The Kindertransport (German for children transport) is a rescue mission that took place during the nine months prior to the outbreak of the Second World War. The United Kingdom took in nearly 10,000 predominantly Jewish children from Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, and the Free City of Danzig. The children were placed in British foster homes, hostels, schools and farms.

 

The following visual was produced to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the creation of the Kindertransport.
