This article examines the future of research on the Kindertransport and how different types of material can contribute to creating a fuller picture. Archival collections such as the papers of the Israelische Kultusgemeinde Wien, now held in Jerusalem, can illuminate hitherto neglected phenomena such as some families' conception of the Kindertransport as a means of uniting rather than separating themselves. Diaries held in public and private collections provide contemporary insights into the Kindertransport experience and the newly published Kindersurvey is a powerful retrospective summary. The article concludes with an investigation of the function and significance of the Kindertransport as a theme in British popular culture.
