Kindertransport was an operation to save Jewish children from Germany and occupied countries in 1938 and 1939. Almost 10,000 children were transported to the UK through this program. I am looking for details on one such child, Anneliese Morgenthau, who was born in Wiesbaden, Germany, in 1927. While I have found a web site dedicated to this operation, it does not seem to have any information on specific children rescued. Does such a list exist, and, if so, can it be searched online?

There may be some information available at The National Archives described here which leads you to a searchable catalogue at http://www.movinghere.org.uk/default.htm.

UK passenger lists do not generally record travel within Europe: see TNA

Have you seen wjr.org.uk/about-us/kindertransport and ajr.org.uk? Also, kindertransport.org/resources.aspx?cat=9 (which you've probably looked at) might be a good starting point.

Try posting a query to the e-mail listserves at JewishGen.org -- they are a knowledgeable bunch and the site is free to use.
