Shalom, dear readers!
 
We are two teachers and a class (grade 5-7) from the Montessori School Chemnitz, Germany. At the moment we are up to start a long term research project, funded by the state of Saxony.
 
We are looking forward to focus on the topic: Kindertransporte. Especially the ones that brought kids out of the town Chemnitz or the state of Saxony (Dresden, Leipzig, ...) to England in 1938 / 1939.
 
Our top interest ist to find relatives of the kids who were saved to find out about their live, familys and their journey. 
 
If you got any information concerning this topoic we would be very glad to hear from you! All our results will be published and presented in an appropriate manner.
 
For further information, questions or contact, write to: michel@...
 
Thanks so much for your help!

Hello Jan Michel!
 
Are you aware of the fact that Kinderstransporte even reached Sweden? There is a book written in German about a girl that came to Sweden.
The title is “Mein Liebes Ilsekind. Mit dem Kindertransport nach Schweden – Briefe an eine gerettete Tochter”. And “Herausgegeben von Elisabeth Cosanne-Schulte-Huxel im Auftrg des Jüdischen Museums Westfalen.
 
Wishing you success!
Daniel in Stockholm, Sweden

My mother's Brown family of Edinburgh and Manchester took in three Kindertransport children during the war. They all came from Dessau near Berlin. I wrote about them in 2018 for Shemot, the Journal of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain. Unfortunately, the last surviving one of these died in Oregon on Xmas Eve, but he left his memoirs for editing by some friends.

You may also be interested in the book "The Forgotten Kindertransportees, the Scottish Experience" by Frances Williams published by Bloomsbury in 2014. This is about a significant number of children who were all put into a residential farm school near Edinburgh, with the intention of them working on the land in the future, even though they all came from  middle class professional homes.

There is a book for kids about a friend of my family who was transported when he was a kid. It's called "I Remember Singing" by Arielle Aaron.  It is probably available on Amazon--it used to be, anyway.

There's also a little book for children about the Kindertransport called 'In My Pocket' by Dorrith (Oppenheim) Sim, who came as a child from Kassel in Germany to Scotland.

There have been numerous talks in GB given by surviving Kindertransportees during the past 18 months to commemorate the 80-year anniversary of Kristallnacht.

Harvey Kaplan of Glasgow asked - what was the original question?

 

Someone had posted in a digest some days/weeks previously if anyone had information on the relatives of Kindertransportees to the UK, in particular from these areas of Germany. Several people replied, including myself, pointing the enquirer to possible sources of information.
