Interview Esther Starobin recounts her journey on the Kindertransport from Adelsheim, Germany to Norwich, England [2002 interview].
[Esther] I don’t know how I got from Adelsheim to the Kindertransport and I certainly don’t know who took care of me on the Kindertransport. I mean, I was a little kid, who knows?
[Interviewer] Two years of age.
[Esther] Two years … it was two years and two months. From what I see in the letters, I was spoiled and didn’t like to leave my mother so who knows who took care of me. My … um … escape to England was arranged by the Quakers. And originally I was supposed to go to Wales and that didn’t pan out. Now the Harrisons, the people that I did go to, lived in Norwich and Mr. Harrison, who I called Uncle Harry, worked in a shoe factory and the man who owned the shoe factory was a Jewish man and he had put up the sign were there any people who were willing to take in children. And they said oh yes, we’re willing to take in children and could we have a little boy because they had one son who is 7 years older than I am. But they got me instead, they didn’t get the little boy.
[Interviewer] They got you
[Esther] They got me.
