This past winter, multi-specialty design studio C&G Partners created a highly emotional and thought-provoking exhibition commemorating the 80th anniversary of the start of Kindertransport, the remarkable humanitarian mission to rescue 10,000 refugee children from Nazi-occupied Europe in the years leading up to the Holocaust.

“Kindertransport – Rescuing Children on the Brink of War” illuminates the story of the Kindertransport (German for "Children's Transport"), the organized effort that brought thousands of Jewish children by train from Nazi Germany and occupied lands to Great Britain between 1938 and 1939. The exhibition explores the story of this rescue effort through moving personal stories, artifacts and engaging media, and asks what it must have been like for the parents, forced to lose their children in order to save them.  

The exhibition, running through May 24, 2019, is co-presented by Yeshiva University Museum and the Leo Baeck Institute at the Center for Jewish History in New York and is the latest in a trilogy of exhibits by C&G Partners at the Center.
