December 2nd 1938 - Arrival of Jewish refugee children in England


December 2nd 1938: Nearly a month after the infamous Kristallnacht, the Nazi November- pogrom in Germany, the first transport of Jewish refugee children from Berlin arrives in the United Kingdom. The number having been around 200 people in the beginning, the figures rose steadily in the years ahead. Between December 1938 and September 1939 a total of 10,000 children were taken in by the United Kingdom. These children not only came from Nazi Germany but also from Austria, Poland and Czechoslovakia. The so-called "Refugee Children Movement" was a desperate attempt to rescue at least part of the Jewish population before the Holocaust. Most of the evacuated children were to never see their parents again.
