Join KTA Executive Director Melissa Hacker for a screening, in commemoration of the 85th year of the Kindertransports, of her film, My Knees Were Jumping; Remembering the Kindertransports. The first documentary film to tell the story of the Kindertransports, a rescue movement that, in the nine months prior to World War II, saved the lives of close to 10,000 children, and a tribute to her mother, a Kindertransport child from Vienna. The children were sent, as unaccompanied refugees, to Britain from Nazi Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland. Most never saw their parents again. The courageous parents who had the strength to send their children off to an unknown fate soon boarded transports taking them to concentration camps. Short-listed for Academy Award Nomination, selected for the Sundance Film Festival.
And visit the special Kindertransport exhibit before the film.
