American Swedish Institute (ASI) presents the exhibition, Kindertransport – Rescuing Children on the Brink of War, which illuminates the story of the Kindertransport (German for “Children’s Transport”), the astonishing rescue effort that brought approximately 10,000 Jewish children from Nazi Germany to Great Britain and other countries, including Sweden, between 1938 and 1939.

This exhibition explores the difficult and often heartbreaking journeys through original artifacts and personal stories.

It brings the Kindertransport to life by presenting objects that the children brought with them on their passage to England; letters between parents and children; new audio testimonies by survivors; and a series of dramatic stories that link the materials in gallery to the broader context of the era.

The Minnesota debut of this exhibition with be accompanied by The Story is Here, featuring the stories of local families in the Midwest who were personally impacted by the Kindertransport.
