Ruth moves on to her second foster family

Ruth was born in 1935 in Berlin, Germany to a Jewish father and a Christian mother. The Nazis classed Ruth as Jewish.

After Kristallnacht on 9 November 1938 the situation for Jewish families became increasingly dangerous. Ruth’s family decided that she and her brother, Martin, should be sent to Britain on the kindertransport.

Ruth’s first foster family placement was far from ideal. Watch this clip to find out what happened when she arrived at the home of her second foster family.
