Third Age Trust: Kindertransport Day - Thursday 2nd December 21 at 10.30

National Kindertransport Day u3a Event

A presentation followed by conversations with Kindertransport refugees and their families, with Dame Esther Rantzen.

Steve Williams, of Arun East u3a, will be delivering his engaging and informative presentation which gives context to the events of 1939. Steve will present some of the key people, many with a u3a connection, involved in rescuing 10,000 children from the threats of Nazi occupation. He will also be introducing some important figures who are less well known. After a break, Dame Esther Rantzen will be talking to u3a members whose lives were saved and transformed by the Kindertransport migration. Hear about their different experiences, from those who lived through it, from the next generation ensuring their family's remarkable past is not forgotten, and from the British hosts, who have grown up with Kindertransport foster siblings.

Following on from this talk there are others in the series:
Thursday 9th December at 14.00 : Holocaust Survivor - Steven Frank.
Thursday 16th December at 14.00
