Anita Lowenberg was living in Berlin with her mother and grandparents in June 1939 when the 6-year-old was told one morning to pack some clothing. Lowenberg soon joined other children on a train to Holland and then a ferry to London as part of the Kindertransport. Now Anita Hoffman, 80, of Boca Raton, will join other Florida members of the Kindertransport at a Dec. 8 cocktail reception and program in Boca Raton to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Kindertransport.
