Holocaust and the Kindertransport: Vera's Story

Description

Watch Vera Gissing tell her story of leaving her home in Czechoslovakia to avoid the Holocaust, in this short video for Key Stage 3 and KS4 history students.

Vera recounts the painful decision her parents had to make to transport her from Czechoslovakia to England to avoid Nazi persecution. She also visits the English house where she grew up.

Secondary pupils can learn how, in 1938 and 1939, 10,000 Jewish children escaped a life of persecution by travelling as refugees with the Kindertransport to safety in the UK.
