Current Display: Remembering the Kindertransport: A tale of two suitcases
Extended by popular demand
The Peace Museum is telling the story of the Kindertransport children through items and personal effects, including suitcases, belonging to two children who were evacuated to Britain prior to the outbreak of the Second World War. Almost 10,000 children, mainly Jewish, were brought to the UK to escape Nazi persecution; many never returned as their families became victims of the Holocaust.
The display opened on January 27th, Holocaust Memorial Day, and has now been extended until Wednesday 26th April, due to popular demand.
There will be a special event to mark the closing of this exhibition, details to follow soon.
