The Kindertransport: a home lost, a new life found?

24 November, 2017, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Kindertransport enabled nearly 10,000 child refugees to flee from Nazi-occupied territories to the UK in 1938-39. This event brings together Kindertransportee Ruth Barnett and the German author Ursula Krechel who based the novel Landgericht, which won the German Book Prize in 2012, on her life. It provides an opportunity to see extracts from the 2016 TV adaptation of the novel and to take part in a discussion on the Kindertransport and its place in fiction.

This event will take place in the Bloomsbury Room, G35 at Senate House.
