Cologne, Germany – Survivors of “Kindertransport,” reunited this week at a commemorative exhibit. The exhibit is open 16 October – 24 November, 2013. 90 year-old Henrietta Franks was 15 when she left Cologne, and “My sister was 12, crying for a whole year.” Franks’ parents fled to southern France, but her father was picked up by the Nazis, telling her mother, “I’ll see you in England.” That was the last her family heard from her father.
