Session 1 Wednesday 24th March: 2 pm - 3.30 pm Presenter: Claire Bruell Topic: Kindertransport to New Zealand
Kindertransport was the unofficial name given to the rescue of between 9 and 10,000 mostly Jewish children brought from Europe between 1938 and 1940. While most went to Great Britain, small groups were also sent to Sweden, Holland and Belgium, and around 1,400 were transported to the USA. These children survived due to the Kindertransport and some found a new life of freedom in New Zealand. Despite their stolen childhoods, the children lived fulfilling lives after the war, studying, marrying and having families of their own, and contributing to New Zealand society.
