Association for Jewish Refugees Kindertransport Reunion
JUNE 23, 2013
The central event will be the Kinder reunion on Sunday 23 June at the JFS in London. The day will include contributions from Kinder, JFS pupils and guest speakers, including the President of the KTA.
The reunion will also incorporate a new exhibition to be curated by the Wiener Library which will be on display at the Library from May.
On Tuesday 25 June, the Leo Baeck Institute London, together with the Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies, will be holding a symposium at the German Historical Institute in London. The conference will focus on the experiences of Kinder after their arrival in Britain and will be a great opportunity for scholars and Kinder to exchange thoughts and ideas. As with the reunion, it is hoped that younger generations will come along as well as Kinder from out of town and overseas.
Later in the year, on Wednesday 20 November, they are organising, with the help of Lord (Alf) Dubs, a special Tea in the Houses of Parliament to mark the debate held there on 21 November 1938 which paved the way for the arrival of the Kindertransport.
To round off the year, World Jewish Relief, in conjunction with the AJR, will be organising a memorial service at Liverpool Street Station on Sunday 1 December, which recalls the arrival 75 years to the day of the first transport of children.
