As conditions deteriorated in Germany in the 1930s, many Jews tried in vain to escape. But thanks to a British humanitarian effort, about 10,000 Jewish children from Germany and neighboring countries were relocated to live with families in the United Kingdom, while their parents stayed behind. This passage to freedom became known as Kindertransport, and is the title of Diane Samuels’ play about families, secrets, and survival.

Includes a conversation with Kindertransport survivor Hilda Fogelson.
