Remembering the Kindertransport: A tale of two suitcases
Past Exhibition: Wednesday 26th April – Friday 27th January
The Peace Museum told the story of 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 exhibition opened on January 27th, Holocaust Memorial Day, and was extended until Wednesday 26th April, due to popular demand.
