Christadelphians’ role in the rescue of Jewish children from Nazi Germany

Jason Hensley, principal of Christadelphia Heritage School in Simi Valley, is writing a book on the Christadelphians’ role in the rescue of Jewish children from Nazi Germany just before the outbreak of World War II. The project stems from Hensley’s visit last year to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., where he was one of 200 teachers who participated in the Arthur and Rochelle Belfer National Conference for Educators.  

From 1938 to 1940, an estimated 10,000 Jewish children under age 17 were transported from Nazi Germany to Britain in the Kindertransport. A majority were housed with families through the efforts of two main organizations, the British Committee for the Jews of Germany and the Movement for the Care of Children from Germany.
About 200 of the refugees found homes with Christadelphian families

We too shall publish in a short-while a (secret) booklet printed in World war II, on the matter.
