'Child Refugees: Five Portraits of the Kindertransport'

Travelling exhibition, 'Kindertransport', in situ

Current status: available to hire

By examining the familiar images of the Kindertransport and highlighting personal stories, the exhibition rediscovers concealed histories that speak to the diverse experiences of the child refugees. From the girl who was parted from her entire family and arrived in England speaking no English, rose to the top of her class and later won recognition as an artist, to the young teacher and musician who accompanied a class of children on a transport from Poland and never went back, no two stories are the same. 

The exhibition can be hired for a maximum of 2 weeks. For longer bookings, please contact the Learning team directly. The travelling exhibitions are in high demand so we cannot guarantee your first preference for dates, but we will do our best to facilitate your request.
