Joseph Haberer was one of the 10,000 children rescued from Nazi Germany and transported to England in 1938-1939. He told his story last week to an audience of mainly seventh and eighth graders at Carroll Jr.-Sr. High School. Haberer was four when the Hitler regime came into power. He said his father was employed by the government as a clerk. When Hitler took over, Haberer’s father, and all other Jews, were fired. “It was during the Depression. We were very poor,” he said.
