The postage stamp collage art, “The Kindertransport” recalls the heroic efforts of Europeans to rescue 10,000 children from the Nazis.

Our goal is to honor the memories of 6 MILLION JEWS, including 1.5 million children, plus 5 MILLION OTHERS considered by the Nazis to be “enemies of the State”.

FRCS Students have completed eleven (11) of a planned series of eighteen (18) postage stamps collage artworks, using thousands of the collected stamps.

Each 18 by 24 inch picture depicts the stories and lessons connected with what FRCS students are learning about the people whose lives were touched by the Holocaust.
