Help LBI keep the past present with a financial donation or by contributing historical materials.
Co-presented by Yeshiva University Museum and the Leo Baeck Institute, this exhibition illuminates the story of the Kindertransport (German for “Children’s Transport”), the organized rescue effort that brought thousands of Jewish children from Nazi Germany to Great Britain between 1938 and 1940.
From engravings depicting Jewish life in German lands in the 16th century to abstract works by German-Jewish émigrés in the second half of the 20th century, LBI's art catalog complements the archival and library collections as a visual record of German-Jewish History.
The LBI is located at the Center for Jewish History on the north side of 16th Street between 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue.
