‘Children of the Kindertransport’.

London
‘Children of the Kindertransport’ statue based outside Liverpool Street Train Station, London. The memorial remembers those Jewish refugees who survived the journey on the Kindertransport and made it to Britain as the country opened its doors and offered them a home before WWII – saving the lives of more than 10,000 children. Sir Nicholas Winton unveiled the plaque expressing gratitude to the people of the United Kingdom who helped protect them from Nazi persecution in Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia.
