"Kindertransport––Rescuing Children on the Brink of War" illuminates the story of the Kindertransport (German for “Children’s Transport”). This astonishingly successful rescue effort brought approximately 10,000 Jewish children from Nazi Germany to Great Britain and other countries, including Sweden, between 1938 and 1939.
Through original artifacts, audio testimonies and moving personal stories the exhibition explores the children's difficult and often heartbreaking journeys. The regional debut of this exhibition is accompanied by "The Story is Here," developed by ASI, which features the experiences of Midwest families impacted by the Kindertransport.
