Kindertransport: Rescuing Children on the Brink of War

A private tour and luncheon with remarks from survivor, Anne Kelemen, presented by the Sisterhood

Sunday, May 12, 11:30AM

Join the Sisterhood of the Spanish & Portuguese Synagogue for a multigenerational tour of the Yeshiva University Museum/Leo Baeck Institute exhibit that tells the story through narrative, artifacts, and multimedia of the Kindertransport - the rescue of thousands of Jewish children from the clutches of Nazi Germany to the relative safety of Great Britain. Honor and preserve the memory of the parents who saved their children from the Holocaust.

In addition to an exclusive tour, we will be joined by Anne Kelemen, who left Vienna on the Kindertransport at the age of 14. She will speak to our group to tell her remarkable and moving story at a private luncheon after the tour.

Space is limited, so sign up today! (Sixth grade and up only.)
