Kindertransport By: Jenella Arscott
Bl:4 How were people chosen to get on the kindertransport? Who was in charge of the kindertransport? Who did the Kindertransport help? What was the Kindertransport? How did the kinder transport begin? Kindertransport means children's transport. Lots of rescue efforts came together to save jewish children from the events that were going to take place in Nazi Germany. This took place between 1938 and 1940. In 1938, the nazis had certain jewish area's controlled. They planned a night where they would kill jews, put them in camps or prison, and destroy their properties. The jews were in great danger. Eventually, the british government was persuaded to let jewish children under 17 come to live in their country until the war was over. After that, they were to be sent back home. The kindertransport helped refugees that were jewish get away from violence taking place in their countries. They let children under the age of 17 go to Britain from German-occupied territories. The children came from Austria, Czechoslovakia and Germany. The journeys were long and traumatic rides and there were numerous checks by nazi authorities. In the end there were 10,000 children saved but, a majority of them never saw their parents again. The kids who were chosen for kindertansport had to be under 17 years old. They couldn't be accompanied by an adult and had to have a sponsor who paid for their trip. The traveled on temporary visas to Britain. By the time the war was over they were to be sent back home. the end... The English government allowed the jewish refugee children to come to England so they could get away from nazi persecution. A organization that helped move the children was movement for the care of the children from Germany. They also organized the rescue operation. There were other relief groups who helped with this operation. It is said that the people who helped organize this, was also the jewish community. What were the results of the kindertransport? After the war was over, about 9,000-10,000 children were saved from the holocaust. The kids were from Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, and Poland. Kids moved all over to Israel, the U.S., Canada, and Australia. A majority of the kids never saw their families again because they were murdered during the holocaust. Someone who experienced the Kindertransport : Anita Hoffer Anita Hoffer was a child sent on the Kindertransport. At first, no one had told her why she had been put on a train. After that she hadn't seen her mom for a long time. She lived with a family for six months, then mother came to England and removed her from the house. Her mother couldn't take care of her so she was put into an orphanage. She became a foster child after and began living with a foster mother for a year and a half. Her mother pulled her out of the home again and they moved to New Jersey and Anita began living with her grandparents. “I was very sad having to leave my parents behind, but I was aware that our collective chance of emigration could improve when I first traveled to England”
-Paul Cohn
Quote 1 Quote 2 “One day Papa tells me that we are going to move again, but not together. He and Mutti will put me on a train and some nice people will meet me in a place called England, and I will stay with them for a short time and then Mutti will come for me”
-Kurt Fuchel
Quote 3 “The smell of the sea drifted towards us as we threaded our way through the crowd. In front of us, a wall of lighted portholes of the vessel stretched into the blue sky. I drew back.”
-Irene Schmied
1. Kindertransport is the name given to the rescue mission that saved 10,000 children just before the start of the Second World War and placed them with families in England.
2. Kindertransport was organized by a British man named Nicholas Winton, who risked his life to save all of the children.
3. Nicholas never told anyone about organizing the Kindertransport. He was caught by his wife later on when she found papers in their attic.
4. On the trip to England, the children were rescued on trains where they traveled mainly through Germany, from the Czech Republic.
5. You could not board the Kindertransport if you were older than 17.
6. Parents were not allowed on the Kindertransports. If they had infants, they were taken care of by other children going on the trip.
7. The first trip had a train filled with kids from an orphanage. This train left Germany on December 1st, 1938.
8. Once the children reached England, they were moved around in England and other places in the United Kingdom like Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
9. Most of the witnesses of the Kindertransport never again saw their parents, who were murdered during the holocaust.
10. The last Kindertransport left on September 1st 1938. After this, World War Two started.
10 Facts About Kindertransport I thought that the whole Idea of the Kindertransport was smart because many of the kids who were involved may have not survived the holocaust. The kids may have resented their parents for putting them on this trip but they were saved. The kids were lucky to have this opportunity and were parts of history. If this were me I would be very scared but happy to get away from the violence. I would also miss my parents a lot because I wouldn’t be sure of the next time that I would see them. There was a lot of sneakiness while putting the Kindertransport together but it worked out.

The people who put the Kindertransport together were heroes because they spent time and money to take trips back and forth and keep these kids safe. They didn’t have to do any of this. If I were in their position I wouldn’t want to be a part of the operation. These people knew what there consequences were when they were put into this but they went along with it anyways. I think they were brave because they hid from Nazi officers when they weren’t supposed to. These people saved many lives.
My Reaction To This Project The children had to wear tags to tell who they were. These were all the children looking out on the sea
as they made their way to England. This is some information that the children needed for the Kindertransport trip.
