KINDERTRANSPORT IN THE NEWS (2004)

 

Pain of broken childhood

Last weekend Kindertransport Survivors gathered in Burlingame to tell their stories. While they shared with each other, they also focused on passing their experiences on to the next generation.

Ilse Lindemeyer said she didn’t speak about her Kindertransport experiences for many years. When she did, it felt like “a dam broke,” and she couldn’t stop telling her story.“Since then I’ve been speaking about it at schools,” she said. "I feel it’s my duty. I want them to know what happened.”
