This pack has been produced to support visits to the 2013/14 production of Kindertransport by Diane Samuels. It been created for use by teachers and their students, who are currently studying the text for GCSEs in English Literature or Drama. It provides background and contextual understanding to the play and the period from which it stems. It includes useful information and commentary from those involved in the production process, as well a look at some of the key themes in the narrative such as fear and identity. A questions and exercises section is included at the back of the pack.
There’s already a great revision guide on TES-thanks josim1. This is a supplementary revision resource: an amalgamation of notes and ideas on the theme of mothers & daughters and some key quotes which may help with revision.
The purpose of this document collection is to allow students and teachers to develop their own questions and lines of historical enquiry. A possible enquiry question would be: 'What was Britain's response to the child refugee problem in Nazi occupied countries?' Again, these sources could be used to support school programmes which use survivor testimony. Alternatively, teachers may wish to use the collection to develop their own resources or to &'curate&'; their own 'exhibition&'.

This lesson can be used as a natural conclusion to a programme of study on the Holocaust and as a focus for schools which wish to create their own Holocaust memorial.
