Leave to Land: The Kitchener Camp Rescue, 1939

1 September 2019 - 8 September 2019

A new mobile exhibition about the Kitchener camp rescue of Jewish refugees to Britain in 1939. In 2019, to commemorate 80 years since the rescue of their fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other relatives, the Kitchener Descendent Group have curated an exhibition about the remarkable Kitchener camp rescue.

The exhibition draws on some of the hundreds of materials of kindly shared by descendant families with the Kitchener camp project: www.kitchenercamp.co.uk

The ten exhibition banners will be set up in the Auditorium of the Jewish Museum London.

These images and this mobile exhibition are to be donated to London’s Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust, so the materials can be kept safe for families and historians.

This exhibition will have limited access due to room availability.
