The Kindertransport to Britain: New Developments in Research

edited by
Andrea Hammel and Bea Lewkowicz

Yearbook of the Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies, volume 13

The Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies invites contributions to Volume 13 of the Yearbook, which is to appear in 2011.

The arrival and settlement of 10,000 unaccompanied children in Britain, today known as the Kindertransport, is one of the most eagerly debated events in the history of the emigration of refugees from National Socialism to Britain. Seventy years after the event, new resources for research have become available and there is widespread media and public interest in the Kindertransport itself and in the lives of the children who came to the UK with the Kindertransport. This volume of the Yearbook aims to present the more recent approaches to the study of the Kindertransport and will place them within a wider research context.

We would welcome proposals addressing the following topics:

• The Kindertransport in British historiography
• The Kindertransport in the media
• The Kindertransport and family relations
• The Kindertransport and the second generation
• Careers and professions of former Kindertransportees
• The Kindertransport and experiences of domestic work
• The Kindertransport and the schooling of refugees
• The Kindertransport and religion
• The Kindertransport and experiences of abuse and neglect
• The Kindertransport Reunion movement
• The Kindertransport and oral history interviews and their use within the field
• Autobiographical narratives by former Kindertransport members
• Life history research of former Kindertransport members
• Comparative research with other groups of child refugees/evacuees and migrants

If you wish to offer a contribution to this volume, please send a synopsis of around 300 words to Dr Andrea Hammel by email by 1 March 2010. If accepted, your paper will have to be submitted for peer review by 1 September 2010.
