The Kindertransport enabled nearly 10,000 child refugees to flee from Nazi-occupied territories to the UK between 1938 and 1939. This event brings together Kindertransportee Ruth Barnett and Ursula Krechel, the German author whose novel Landgericht is based on documents detailing Barnett’s family story (it won the German Book Prize in 2012).

The evening provides an opportunity to take part in a discussion with Barnett and Krechel as well as experts on the history and memory of the Kindertransport and its mediation in fiction.
