Editing: Children depart 5.13 pm

In memory of the deportation of 17,000 Jews during the so-called Polenaktion (Polish action) and the large-scale rescue effort of the Kindertransport (children’s transport) in 1938/39, the Jawne Memorial and Educational Center created the exhibition “Children depart 5.13 pm”. The title is a quote from a telegram sent by Jawne Director Erich Klibansky, who organized the rescue of schoolchildren from the Rhineland. Philine Lissner supported the project group as an editor. The exhibition continues online and can be visited at
