Eva-Maria Thüne visited 36 Kindertransport ‘children’ and held talks with them in 2017-2018. The main concern of the linguist was to gain knowledge about the attitudes of the rescued towards the German and the acquisition of the English language. As a study on the language of migrants, von Thüne’s investigation includes questions about language change, linguistic and cultural affiliation and identity. Her website includes links to the interviews.
