13 January @ 2.00 pm - 3.00 pm
The Central British Fund for German Jewry (now World Jewish Relief) was instrumental in the organisation of the Kindertransport. Its archives hold documents recording the placements of the children. Rebecca Singer will talk about the charity’s archive which holds documents recording the children’s early lives in Britain. Elsa Shamash, one of the Kinder featured in the exhibition, will discuss some of these documents and her own personal version of events.
This event is free.
This event is held in partnership with World Jewish Relief.
