Ruth Kohner was a Jewish refugee from the Sudetenland. She and her sister and parents came to Northern Ireland as part of the Kindertransport.
In recent years, Ruth has told her story to school children at Millisle Primary School, Millisle, Co. Down and Down County Museum, Downpatrick, Co. Down.
After leaving the safe-haven of Millisle, Ruth never returned to her homeland in the former Czechoslovakia. She remained in Northern Ireland.
The extended Kohner family lost a total of 23 members during the Holocaust.
