Join us to hear the fascinating story of the Kindertransports. From December 1st, 1938, through September 1st, 1939, nearly 10,000 mostly Jewish children traveled from Nazi Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, and Danzig to the United Kingdom without their parents. This rescue mission became known as the Kindertransport. In 1990, more than 50 years later, a group of Kindertransport survivors in New York City came together to establish the Kindertransport Association, or KTA ( as an intergenerational group with the missions of connecting these child Holocaust survivors and descendants. KTA President and filmmaker Melissa Hacker will talk about her film, which follows a group of four survivors and 14 second-generation family members tracing the Kindertransport journeys from the countries they fled to the UK; Wendy Henry, a KTA member whose mother was rescued by the Kindertransport; and Dr. Amy Williams, who is doing research on the Kindertransports.
