Children of the Holocaust: Kindertransport Stories

Sunday April 28, 2019

Uri Berliner, a senior business editor at National Public Radio, recently revealed the moving story of how his father escaped the Nazis when his parents put him on a Kindertransport train to Sweden. Berliner and Holocaust survivor Esther Starobin will talk about the Kindertransport, which enabled 10,000 children to escape the Nazis, when they present Children of the Holocaust: Kindertransport Stories, part of this year’s Holocaust Service of Remembrance and Lecture at Elmhurst College.

Berliner told the story of his father, Gert, in “A Toy Monkey That Escaped Nazi Germany and Reunited a Family,” which aired in November 2018 on the NPR program “All Things Considered.” Starobin, a volunteer at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, was only a toddler when she was sent to England in 1939 on a Kindertransport. Gert Berliner’s parents and Starobin’s parents died at Auschwitz.
