Facebook Live The Kindertransport Rescuers and Rescued
In 1938-1939, approximately 10,000 children left their families to travel alone from Nazi-occupied territories to safety in Great Britain in what became known as the Kindertransport. Among them were 669 children from Czechoslovakia whose rescue was organized by 29-year-old British stockbroker Nicholas Winton. Those children became known as the "Winton Children."
Join the museum on Facebook Live for a fascinating conversation about the Kindertransport and its legacy with:
• Barbara Winton, daughter of rescuer Sir Nicholas Winton, who died in 2015 at the age of 106
• Amanda Susskind, Regional Director, ADL LA, whose father, Charles Susskind, was one of “Winton’s Children”
• Michele Gold, Museum Board Chair, author of Memories That Won’t Go Away, and daughter of Kindertransport survivor Rita Berwald
