Abstract:

Examines the history of the "Kindertransport" rescue as part of the history of emigration from Germany during the period 1933-45, based on archival material and interviews with 26 of the children. Between December 1938 and September 1939, ca. 10,000 Jewish children were able to emigrate from the Third Reich to England. The "Kindertransport" rescue took place at a time when the borders of the whole world were closed to Jews. Discusses the situation in Germany in 1938, British immigration policy, the organization of the "Kindertransports", the children's lives in England, and the war years. The Jewish Refugee Committee in London, which was responsible for the children's expenses during their sojourn, had been founded in 1933 in order to assist refugees from Germany; in 1939 it became the Central Council for Jewish Refugees. With the outbreak of war, the "Kindertransports" ceased; the last ship arrived in England in May 1940 from the Netherlands.
