Learn from film producer and author Deborah Oppenheimer as she discusses the 2000 documentary film “Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport.” The film tells the story about the British rescue operation known as the Kindertransport, which saved the lives of over 10,000 Jewish and other children from Nazi-occupied Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia and Danzig by transporting them via train, boat and plane to Great Britain.
These children, or kinder in German, were taken into foster homes and hostels in Britain, expecting eventually to be reunited with their parents. The majority of them never saw their families again.
Written and directed by Mark Jonathan Harris, produced by Deborah Oppenheimer, narrated by Judi Dench and made with the cooperation of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The film received numerous accolades, including winning the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.+ More... - Less...
