The Kindertransport: A personal Testimony

Because of the unsuitability of introducing the Holocaust directly to primary school students, this lesson focuses on the testimony of those young people brought to the UK on the Kindertransport. This lesson focuses on those who helped children to flee the Holocaust, and how both individual heroes and collective action remain essential to help the victims of humanitarian crises.

Holocaust Memorial Day Live will focus on providing young people with access to the first-hand testimony of survivors of Nazi persecution and the Holocaust. Through age-appropriate live lessons, there is an opportunity to expand the reach of those survivors still with us, from those who came to Britain on the Kindertransport, to those who survived the concentration camps.
