Image of inside of exhibition

Between December 1938 and May 1940, almost 10,000 unaccompanied mostly Jewish children were brought to Britain from Nazi Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland in what became known as the Kindertransport.

Developed as part of the Harwich Haven: Surrender & Sanctuary project, this new travelling exhibition draws on our collections to tell the story of the Kindertransport through the experiences of eight children and the loved ones they left behind.

It is a story of persecution, migration, of refugees who were made welcome and those who were turned away.
