Adoption Month: From Strangers to Family
A notice on the shoe factory’s bulletin board prompted the British couple to volunteer. They knew little; a Jewish child fleeing Nazi Germany needed a safe home. What began as a good deed blossomed into bonds that lasted a lifetime. When Harry and Dot Harrison greeted two-year-old Esther on their doorstep, they never imagined that over eight years she would become like a daughter to them. Join the US Holocaust Memorial Museum as we commemorate Adoption Month with the story of Kindertransport survivor and longtime KTA member Esther Rosenfeld Starobin.
