For almost 75 years, Magie Furst has owed her very survival to the kindness of strangers. She and her brother were among about 10,000 German Jewish children who survived the Holocaust because of a British rescue effort known as the “kindertransport.” For many years, she’s helped the Dallas Holocaust Museum keep the events of that era alive by sharing her memories with students and other visitors. In an exhibit that begins Wednesday, her story and the kindertransports will be featured.
