This channel includes video clips from Herbert Kohn's oral history interview, in which he describes his childhood in Frankfurt, Germany and experiences as a refugee, immigrating first to England and later to the United States.

When the Nazis came to power in 1933, six-year-old Herbert Kohn was forced to leave public school in Frankfurt, Germany. The Nazis imprisoned Kohn’s father after Kristallnacht but released him a few weeks later because of his service in World War I. Kohn and his family immigrated to the United States in 1940.
