Preparing for Kindertransport -Vera Gissing

Storyboard Text

  • Me, Vera Gissing (11)
  • Older sister
  • May of 1939, it was at the dinner table that my sister and I were told about our transfer to England
  • ... ughh ... alright, let them go.
  • Dad
  • New Friends! Trains! Food!
  • We are the first ones in our family to ever go to England! What excitement and honor that is!
  • We only thought of this as an EXCITING ADVENTURE. Little did we know what could happen to us...
  • Write in this diary when lonely, or home sick; when something happy or sad happens so that we could all sit at the table and read it together when we come home.
  • Even when you can't write, let the stars of the night and the sun of the day be our messenger of our thoughts and love. This would always keep us close.
  • I was carried to an opened window by my mother...
  • The sky was full of stars. Thanks to my Mother, I never felt abandoned by them, but always close to them.
