My father, Ernest Winter, a kinder-transport child appears twice in this documentary.
16 July 2015 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

My dad, Ernest (formerly Ernst) Winter (now deceased), was the boy that is crossing the screen in some of the only film footage of the children arriving in England on the Kinder-transport. He is also the middle child of the Picture Post photo of the three boys with the tags around his neck - a picture from the archives of the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.

Up until I saw this documentary, I had never seen this film footage or photographs before. His picture was on collection cans all around England to raise money for the Jewish Refugee Fund. Watching this has led me on a quest - which has led me to more pictures in books of my dad. It is still going on to this day.

I was so incredibly moved by this documentary. It brought to life in pictures and story what I had only grown up hearing from my dad. The documentary made my dad's story which had legend status in our family, much more real to me. The stories were exactly the same as the ones I heard from my dad. I had only heard them from him, so it was so touching to hear them from other survivors and their children.
