Anti-Semitism and the Holocaust by Alan Farmer
Publication Date: 2010-02-22
This new edition of Anti-Semitism and the Holocaust covers the origins of anti-Semitism from the nineteenth century, and traces the events that took place in Germany from 1933 to 1945. The anti-Semitic views of Hitler are analyzed as is the means by which these views shaped the racial state inthe Third Reich. The impact of the Second World War and the events which led ultimately to the Final Solution are then assessed. All of these events are also considered within the wider historiographical debates which have surrounded this period of history, from questions on who should ultimately bear the blame, to issues of Holocaust denial. Throughout the book, key dates, terms and issues are highlighted, and historical interpretations of key debates are outlined. Summary diagrams are included to consolidate knowledge and understanding of the period, and exam-style questions and tips written by examiners provide the opportunity todevelop exam skills.
Kinder Transport Association
The first Kindertransport arrived at Harwich, England on December 2, 1938, bringing 196 children from a Berlin Jewish orphanage burned by the Nazis during the night of November 9.
Holocaust Memorial Day Trust
Approximately 10,000 children, the majority of whom were Jewish, were sent from their homes and families in Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia to Great Britain.
In these video clips, recorded by the 'Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation', they describe their experiences as Jewish children in Nazi Germany and Austria, and the emotions they felt when leaving their parents in order to find safety in Britain.
75 years after the British government sanctioned a mission to bring 10,000 Jewish children to the UK, some of those who came to Britain speak about their memories. It contains one of the last interviews with Sir Nicholas Winton who organized the transport of the Jewish children to the UK. Producer: Maria Polachowska.
This is our second short film to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day. Prior to World War II, many children made journeys through Europe to escape the Nazis and the growing wave of anti-Semitism. The memories of those who travelled to safety as part of the Kindertransport programme are shared. The film also marks the 75th Anniversary of the Kindertransport programme (1938 - 2013).
During World War II thousands of children, most of whom were Jewish, had to leave their parents and travel to the UK to escape persecution. Survivors - like Ursula Rosenfield - were kept safe by the kindertransport mission.
