The Kindertransport Association, founded by Edward Behrendt (President Emeritus), formerly of Reach and Teach, consists of Holocaust survivors, and some of their offspring and educators, located in various parts of the country, with affiliates in other countries. Their Web site is at the following URL: <http://www.kindertransport.org/>.
"The Kindertransport Association (KTA) is a not-for-profit organization of child Holocaust survivors who were sent, without their parents, out of Austria, Germany, Poland and Czechoslovakia to Great Britain. Members of the KTA are those who ultimately came to live in the United States of America or Canada, and their subsequent generations."
The mission of the Kindertransport Association (KTA) is as follows:
- To locate, reunite, and bring together those individuals who, many years ago, were directly involved in the Kindertransport, and who have since immigrated to North America
- To educate and inform the "Next Generation," as well as the public in general, regarding the story of the Kindertransport as an important part of Holocaust History.
- To be involved with charitable work, particularly as it pertains to needy children without parents, regardless of race, creed, color or religion.
Any educator, teacher, or organization interested in obtaining further information, may contact the Mr. Kurt Goldberger, president of the KTA, at <email@example.com>.
