My Brown (Brin) family of Edinburgh looked after the Hirsch children from Dessau (Gerhard and Madeline) who escaped on the Kindertransport from Berlin in 1939, where they had been at boarding school.

Many German Kindertransport children went to live at a farm school near Edinburgh called Whittinghame,  as outlined in "The Forgotten Kindertransportees, the Scottish Experience" by Frances Williams published in 2014 by Bloomsbury Books (I understand this was her Phd thesis).
