RESCUING CHILDREN ON THE BRINK OF WAR
On display 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. Kindertransport – Rescuing Children on the Brink of War is open Sunday-Friday during regular operating hours of the HMC and is included with museum admission or membership.
