After the November pogroms in 1938, around 20,000 Jewish children from Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia were rescued by the so-called "Kindertransporte" ("children’s transports"). Their life stories and the fates of their families are the focus of the book "Rettet wenigstens die Kinder" ("At least save the children"). A musical backdrop to the event will be provided by pianist Professor Dr. Joachim Reinhuber, whose mother was rescued by a Kindertransport, and his son, baritone Noah Reinhuber.

About half of the children rescued came to England, as did Renata Harris, whose mother Grete was deported and murdered by the Nazis. The photo on the left shows the mother and daughter still together in Germany.

Event organised by the German Exile Archive 1933–1945 in cooperation with the project Jewish Life in Frankfurt am Main.
