1939. Sir Nicholas Winton organized the Kindertransport, which transported Jewish children from Nazi Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, and the Free City of Danzig to safety in Britain. The UK took in nearly 10,000 children, placing them in British foster homes, hostels, and farms. Most survived the war. A small number were reunited with parents who had either spent the war in hiding or survived the Nazi camps, but the majority, after the war, found their parents had been killed.
