John Schnellenberg with his parents’ passports. Mr Schnellenberg was three when he arrived in New Zealand in 1939.

Suitcases belonging to two Jewish children sent by their parents from Nazi Germany to England, and eventually to Masterton, will be unveiled at the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand. The two children “escaped the horrors of the camps” via Kindertransport, sent by their parents to England and eventually settled with relatives in Masterton in 1946. They never saw their parents again.
