To mark the 80th anniversary of the Kindertransport, discover the stories of six of the Kinder (child refugees) in their own words.

In 1938-39 the British government allowed 10,000 Jewish and other ‘non-Aryan’ children from occupied Europe to come to Britain. This remarkable rescue operation became known as the Kindertransport. Now in their 80s and 90s, the Kinder have given their testimony through the medium of film. You can also see personal objects and artefacts that they brought with them from their homelands.

As children they escaped violence and persecution, but went through painful separations, and their integration into British society was not always straightforward. This exhibition tells the story of rescue as well as stories of rupture, loss and regret.
