Kindertransport: Memorial Westbahnhof Wien. Some 10,000 Jewish children from Nazi-occupied Europe entered Britain in 1938/39 during the Kindertransport rescue mission. The British Parliament agreed to waive immigration restrictions. Charitable organisations such as the Red Cross organised the Kindertransport, involving unaccompanied children - aged five to 17 - travelling to Britain by train and boat via Holland. Many were orphaned and remained in the UK.
Near train stations in Berlin, Hamburg and Danzig you will find similar memorials in honour of »Kindertransport«.
