Special Curatorial Event -
Remembering The Kindertransport 
Monday 18th December

"The whole family came to see me off at the station in Konigsberg and my father travelled with me to Berlin to join the Kindertransport train. I remember one of his cousins racing down the platform as the train was starting, just to say goodbye to me. It was a bit tearful, but I didn't take it that seriously. I thought I would see them all again." Ellen Rawson, Holocaust survivor. Ellen Rawsons doll which she brought to the UK on the Kindertansport will be an artefact shown in the talk. 


Curator Talks at 11.00am- 12.00pm

& 2.00pm- 3.00pm 

After the Night of Broken Glass in November 1938, nearly 10,000 unaccompanied children were bravely sent to the UK to escape Nazi persecution. December 2023 marks the 85th anniversary of the Kindertransport. Our Curator led talk will guide you through our survivor experiences of the Kindertransport, precious objects that they brought with them to the UK and the British rescuers, including Nicholas Winton, who helped them to safety. 

We are open from 10am until 4.30pm and in addition to our event above, our museum exhibitions and memorial gardens are open for you to explore.
