The exhibition’s thoughtful, artistic design draws visitors in and features 75 personal artifacts, including items from Illinois Holocaust Museum’s collection, Survivor testimonies, and quotes that chart the heart-wrenching decisions parents made in sending their children away to safety.Kindertransport – Rescuing Children on the Brink of War was created and organized by Yeshiva University Museum and the Leo Baeck Institute – New York | Berlin.
