My Knees Were Jumping [videorecording]: Remembering the Kindertransports

a film by Melissa Hacker
Format
Video; VHS
Summary
"Filmmaker Melissa Hacker's mother, Ruth Morley (Academy Award nominated costume designer for The Miracle Worker), was one of the over 10,000 children who were saved in the Kindertransport movement during the Holocaust. On the eve of World War II, as millions of Jews were seeking refuge from Nazi persecution, country after country turned its back--all except for Great Britain who opened its doors to an unspecified number of Jewish children in danger. As the children boarded trains taking them to a safe haven in London, their parents were left to embark on a different journey--one taking them to the concentration camps. Most of these children never saw their parents again."--Container.
