Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport (2000)
Thursday, February 27
Presented at the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center
For nine months prior to World War II, in an act of mercy unequaled anywhere else before the war, Britain conducted an extraordinary rescue mission, opening its doors to over 10,000 Jewish and other children from Germany, Austria, and Czechoslovakia. These children, or Kinder, as they came to be known, were taken into foster homes and hostels in Britain, expecting eventually to be reunited with their parents. The majority of them never saw their families again.
