Posted on January 1, 2010

Erich Reich, one of thousands of Kindertransport children sent from Nazi-occupied Europe to Britain during World War II, was among the people knighted by Queen Elizabeth as part of the annual New Year’s Honours list, the Telegraph reported Thursday. Reich, 74, is chairman of the Kindertransport Group of the Association of Jewish Refugees, who organized the celebrations last year to mark the 70th anniversary of the British Parliament’s decision to allow the children to enter the country.
