When the city of Mozart and Beethoven became a city of murderers and beasts

In March of 1938, German troops rolled over the border into Austria and from that moment on, Jews throughout the country desperately looked for ways to get out.

 

Few doors were open to them, but the British government was willing to take unaccompanied children. Over a nine month period, from December, 1938 until August, 1939, thousands of Jewish children in Vienna were brought to stations by their parents and few of them would ever see each other again.
