My mother, Anita Heufeld, was one of 10,000 rescued by the Central British Fund for German Jewry. Just short of her 14th birthday, she became an unaccompanied minor, fleeing for safe haven in England. Her parents and most of her extended family remained behind and were killed. My trip to Fischach was instigated when the Jewish Museum of Augsburg launched an exhibition on what had happened to the Kindertransport children after they escaped. The curators wanted to include my mother’s story.
