Telegrams between Hannele Kuhn and her parents highlight family separation during the Holocaust.
Text Description

These Red Cross telegrams from Franz and Hertha Kuhn in Berlin to their daughter Hannele, who had managed to find refuge in Great Britain on one of the Kindertransports, give a moving account of the trials and tribulations of a very close-knit, loving family split asunder by the Nazis.

Pictured is her parents' last letter, dated 22 June 1942, which, having been re-read some 50 years later by Hannele, is thought to be a farewell letter, containing words of advice on how to lead her life.
