Felix Weil, 82, shared his first-hand experience of traveling on the first Kindertransport that departed Germany for England in 1938. He related a tale of being chosen from a lottery, leaving his sobbing parents at the station (never to see them again),and finding three sizes of pants – from child, adolescent, and adult – in his meager suitcase. In addition to his personal experience, Weil explained the political, social & religious climate of Poland, Russia and Germany during that time.
