Kindertransport exhibit opens at Jewish Museum Vienna #austria-czech


I was invited and attended the opening on November 9, 2021, of an exhibit at the Jewish Museum Vienna, entitled Without Home. Kindertransports from Vienna.
My late mother Susanne (Spritzer) Perl fled Vienna in June 1939 on a Kindertransport for Great Britain. She lived initially in Edinburgh, and then Selkirk, Scotland.
My mother was interviewed for the exhibit by Dr. Danielle Spera, the Museum's Director in November 2019. There are a few items of mom from that era on display in the exhibit.
If you live in Vienna, or plan on visting in the coming months, I recommend a visit to this touching exhibit.

I've visited several times and have found all their special exhibitions to be superbly curated - would expect this to be the same. Hope to be able to go soon. Highly recommended

Does there happen to be a list of names of children who were on the Kindertransport?
im looking forward cousins Theo David Sperber and Meeman David Sperber of Karlsruhe, Germany and Knittingen.

Info is available from the individual Alien Registration records on Ancestry, FindmyPast and UK National Archives, and also via the Assn of Jewish Refugees. In some cases, there is specific data for some groups of arrivals - I found the records for the Kindertransports taken in by my Edinburgh family when they arrived in Southampton in 1939 from Berlin.
