Leave to Land

Leave to Land

The Kitchener Camp has been largely forgotten today, but in 1939, this derelict army base on the Kent coast in southeastern England became the scene of an extraordinary rescue in which 4,000 men were saved from the Holocaust.

The Leave to Land traveling exhibition was based on materials collected through The Kitchener Camp Project(https://kitchenercamp.co.uk/), a unique online resource that brings together archival records and family treasures to build a moving and compelling picture of this unlikely sanctuary.

The exhibition premiered at London's Jewish Museum on September 1, 2019, and LBI New York is bringing a version of the exhibition to the Center for Jewish History in Manhattan on January 16, 2024.
