The Kindertransport - Goodbye Home

Description

This moving and powerful programme tells the story of the struggle Jewish refugee children faced in the late 1930s when they were uprooted from home to avoid persecution and the forthcoming Holocaust.

From 1938 to 1939 ten thousand Jewish refugee children were saved from a life of continuous persecution at home, but forced to part with family and friends and travel with the Kindertransport to safety in the UK.

Some of the children and a teacher working in one of the schools where they studied provide their thoughts.

There is also an investigation into the role played by foster homes, and by schools, that provided stability and security in the children's damaged lives.

Part of the series: Action! Teacher Video
