Interview with Dr. Heini Halberstam, Kindertransport Traveler

Interview with Dr. Heini Halberstam, a retired faculty member of the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. As a child, Dr. Halberstam traveled from former Czechoslovakia to England on the Kindertransport, an organized movement of nearly 10,000 Jewish children out of Nazi territories before World War II. Dr. Halberstam joined us for a post-show discussion following the performances of My Heart in a Suitcase on March 30, 2009. This interview may further help audience members understand his experiences.
