GVSU explores Kindertransport 75th anniversary
A series of events will be held in November to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Kindertransport, a mission that evacuated more than 10,000 Jewish children from Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia before World War II officially began. The exhibition called “The Kindertransport Journey” will be displayed in the atrium level of the Mary Idema Pew Library from Nov. 1 to Nov. 24. A Kindertransport survivor will give a speech Nov. 5 at 4 p.m. in the multipurpose room on the atrium level of the library. Both events are free and open to the public. Six performances of the stage production of “Kindertransport” are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 15, 16, 21 and 22, as well as at 2 p.m. Nov. 17 and 23 at the GVSU Performing Arts Center. Tickets can be bought at GVSU’s Louis Armstrong Theatre box office and are $12 for adults; $10 for faculty, staff, alumni and seniors; and $6 for all students and groups of 10 or more.
