The Kindertransport (“children’s transports”) is a remarkable story to arise out of the horrors of the Holocaust. Over 10,000 mostly Jewish children could be rescued, because their parents were willing to separate from them. Lilly Maier, Fulbright scholar, historian, and journalist, has researched the history of the Kindertransport for years and interviewed dozens of adults all over the United States who once were the young protagonists of these children’s transports. In this lecture, she will highlight the history and long-term effects of the intervention.

Financed by the Third Reich, the Berlin Phil­har­monic was not only Germany’s flagship orchestra; as a major tool of Pro­pa­ganda Minister Goeb­bels, it also became an ambas­sador for the Nazi regime, par­ti­cu­larly on for­eign tours. In this docu­men­tary the spot­light is on the orchestra itself – the musi­cians, the people, and their indi­vi­dual desti­nies.
