Holocaust and the Kindertransport: Otto's Story



In this lesson idea for Key Stage 3 and KS4 history pupils, Otto Deutsch speaks about his experiences of the Holocaust, and how he was forced to leave Austria and move to the UK as a child.

Otto visits his childhood home in Austria, describes his journey to England and discusses his struggle to fit into his new surroundings.

Secondary pupils can learn how, in 1938 and 1939, 10,000 Jewish children escaped a life of persecution by travelling as refugees with the Kindertransport to safety in the UK.
