The Kindertransport was a British rescue operation that enabled 10,000 primarily Jewish children to escape the Nazi’s in the months leading up to the declaration of WWII. The success of this initiative required the bravery of individuals, speedy policy creation, and collaboration between diverse religious groups. Above all, it required 10,000 children to say goodbye to their parents. For these parents, the Kindertransport was the only option for their children to escape persecution. Many of the children never saw their parents again.
