Vienna to host Kindertransport museum

Posted on December 7, 2014

Vienna will be the home of what organizers are calling the world’s first permanent museum dedicated to the story of the Kindertransport. The memorial museum “For the Child” is set to open in the center of the Austrian capital on Wednesday. The Dec. 10 opening is on the 76th anniversary of the departure of the first group of Jewish children from Vienna as part of the Kindertransport — the German-language name for the organized shipment of Jewish children, to save them from the Holocaust.
