Most were the only ones in their family to survive, and, tragically, never saw their parents again.

More about Kindertransport - Heroism and Humanity During Wartime
This historical play, written by Diane Samuels, is based upon one of the most harrowing policies to emerge during World War II. In November 1938, the Nazis inflicted the first series of horrific organised violence upon the Jewish population of Germany, in what has come to be known as Kristallnacht ("Night of Broken Glass"). Days after the horrendous happenings, the British government quickly initiated the Children's Transport rescue mission to ferry Jewish children away from Nazi controlled Germany to the safety of the UK.
This theatrical production examines the life of a young Jewish girl as she is uprooted from her country, separated from her parents and submerged completely alone into the unfamiliar culture of the UK as part of the rescue mission. The play was first performed in the UK by the Soho Theatre Company in 1993, afterward traveling to New York and going on to captivate and move audiences the world over since. Countries including Sweden, Japan, German and South Africa have experienced the harrowing, inspiring stage production, and now you can, too.
