This podcast explores one specific strand of the Jewish refugee experience — the Kindertransport. This rescue effort began on the 1st December 1938 and lasted until the outbreak of war in September 1939. Nearly 10,000 children, mostly from Germany and Austria, were sent by their parents to safety in England. We use testimony extracts from the AJR Refugee Voices Archive to examine the Kindertransport from first-hand sources, to try to better understand this historical event in its depth and complexity – both for its own sake and also in the hopes of informing our understanding of refugee policies today.
