Childhood Left at the Station:

A Tribute to the Children of the Kindertransport

 

Childhood Left at the Station: A Tribute to the Children of the Kindertransport highlights 10 of the 10,000 children (kinder) who had to leave their families, friends, and homes in search of safety during a time of impending danger.

These five courageous children, ranging in age from five to seventeen, left their homes in Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, and Danzig for family, foster homes, and strangers in the U.K. and Switzerland. The exhibit’s vivid personal narratives weave together a story of tragedy, resilience, and kindness.

The exhibition comes with twelve pop-up panels – an introductory panel, a panel detailing the history of the Kindertransport, and a panel to highlight each of the ten children and their stories. The exhibition was originally produced for a gallery space of 624 square feet but can easily be adapted to suit bigger or smaller spaces. Facsimiles of additional artifacts for each child are also available for display, as well as accompanying text for each artifact.
