Bearing Witness to the Holocaust: Registration Certificate for a Girl Who Was Part of the Kindertransport to England, 1939

Source: U.S. Holocaust Museum archives

10,000 Jewish children—without their parents—were sent to England to escape the Nazis.

In these kindertransports, imagine, if it is possible, the heart-wrenching moment of separation between each parent and each child. It is enough to make one question the existence of God—that God would permit such an evil to occur, and in such vast numbers—and then allow the parents, already torn asunder in soul, to be transported themselves, via train, to death camps in the east.
