Sanctuary80 Film Show – Into the Arms of Strangers, and Harwich Memories

01.12.2018

Mayflower Heritage Centre - 7pm

Join us in the atmospheric Mayflower Centre just a few feet from the train tracks where the Kindertransport arrived, for a screening of Into The Arms of Strangers. This Academy Award-winning feature film documents the remarkable journey of over 10,000 children. These children, or Kinder in German, were taken into foster homes and hostels in Britain, expecting eventually to be reunited with their parents. The majority of them never saw their families again. Written and directed by Mark Jonathan Harris, produced by Deborah Oppenheimer, narrated by Judi Dench, and made with the cooperation of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, it utilized rare and extensive footage, photographs, and artifacts, and is told in the words of the child survivors, rescuers, parents, and foster parents.

 

The film will be followed by a short collection of Kindertransport memories specifically related to their arrival in Harwich, and their experience in the Warner Holiday Camp in Dovercourt where many stayed over winter 1938.

 

Adults £5, under 21 free, local residents £2 with code CO12.  Tickets through Eastern Angles Box Office online and Harwich Festival outlet at Harwich Library.
