The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance presents a new special exhibit: A History of the Kindertransport, which will be on display at the Dallas Holocaust Museum from The Kindertransport was a British rescue operation that enabled 10,000 primarily Jewish children to escape the Nazi’s in the months leading up to the declaration of WWII. The success of this initiative required the bravery of individuals, speedy policy creation, and collaboration between diverse religious groups. Above all, it required 10,000 children to say goodbye to their parents. For these parents, the Kindertransport was the only option for their children to escape persecution. Many of the children never saw their parents again.
Through this exhibit, visitors will hear the stories of sacrifice, the hope and the fears of the children and their parents. Two of these stories belong to Dallas residents Magie Furst and her brother Bert Romberg who escaped through the Kindertransport along with their mother, Sida. However, once the family arrived in England, they were separated and would not be reunited until after the war.
