Panel 12: Retribution

Robert Sugar was eight when he left Vienna on a Kindertransport in January 1939. He spent the next nine years on the Millisle refugee farm in Northern Ireland, and arrived in New York in 1948. A graphic designer, art director, and author, Robert Sugar still lives in New York. He has written and designed extensive material on Jewish history.

His previous exhibit, From Vienna to Belfast: Children of the Farm, recounted his personal experience. The present exhibit tells the larger story of Kindertransport. He is a former member of the Executive Board of KTA.

The exhibit The Kindertransport Journey: Memory into History is composed of 17 panels (16 are 30" x 40"; 1 is 20" x 30"), laminated and framed sealed in non-glare plexiglass.

"I keep remembering the young mother who placed her children on the train and then took her back; she repeated this three times... The Kindertransport exhibit explores a little-known chapter of Holocaust history and offers the viewer an opportunity to meet the Kinder and learn their story."
