Kindertransport – Rescuing Children on the Brink of War
On exhibit July 1 – December 31
Created by Yeshiva University Museum and the Leo Baeck Institute, the exhibition illuminates the story of the Kindertransport (German for “Children’s Transport”), the organized rescue effort that brought thousands of Jewish children from Nazi Europe to Great Britain in the late 1930s.
The exhibition explores the children’s difficult and often heartbreaking journeys through original artifacts, personal stories, and engaging media. Artifacts from local Detroit Kinder are included in this captivating exhibit.
The exhibition was made possible by the generous support of The Azrieli Foundation, The David Berg Foundation, The Koret Foundation, the Gruss Hirsch Family Foundation, and by Anonymous. Additional support was provided by the Wolfensohn Family Foundation, Robert M. Kaufman, Temple Shalom of Scotch Plains (NJ), and by patrons and friends of Yeshiva University Museum and the Leo Baeck Institute.
