Carousel in Frankfurt to recall the Kindertransport

Posted on February 14, 2020

A children’s carousel of the kind installed in British playgrounds in the 1930s has been selected by the city of Frankfurt to commemorate the unaccompanied children on the Kindertransport from Nazi Germany and other occupied territories before the outbreak of the Second World War. The Orphan Carousel, conceived by the Israeli artist Yael Bartana, features texts that could be quotations from the children who were saved and from their parents, most of whom were killed in Nazi death camps.
