Getting The Children Out: Forgotten Rescuers of the Kindertransport
May 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
We are proud to be a community partner for an upcoming online program hosted by Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center. Join us with award-winning researcher, educator, playwright, and journalist Mike Levy for an exploration of the mostly forgotten role of Kindertransport rescuers and the quickly established landscapes of care in host countries.
Levy’s presentation covers how the rescue of 10,000 mainly Jewish children from Nazi-controlled territory was carried out, the mechanics of the rescue and its relationship to governmental policies, and how a large-scale voluntary effort to care for displaced children was created and sustained.
