WE MUST SAVE THE CHILDREN

You can help make this all happen.


The end product of the research phase will be an exhibition, a DVD and some new educational resources. We are working with communities across the city – churches, synagogues and many others  - to recruit a band of volunteer researchers to help reveal the human stories behind the rescue. Children from Bewick Bridge Primary School will take part, as will many others across the city.


Robyn Llewellyn, Head of Heritage Lottery Fund East of England, said: “HLF is delighted to support this project which will mark the 75th anniversary of the arrival to Cambridge of the first refugee children from Nazi occupied Europe, exploring the little known story of these children and the families that fostered them. The project will share this fascinating aspect of Cambridge’s heritage with the local community.”


“You can help make all this happen by taking part in the project which runs from now to the summer. You can put as much or as little time into it as you wish. We are arranging exciting talks, a trip for some to London to the archives, and a photo shoot.  We invite the people of Cambridge to contact us and find out more about this exciting project. Contact us on admin@keystage-company.co.uk”, Lesley Ford, Keystage Arts and Heritage.

Memorial to the children of the Kindertansport outside Liverpool Street Station, London.

A plaque below the memorial reads:


“In gratitude to the people of Britain for saving the lives of 10,000 unaccompanied mainly Jewish children who fled from Nazi persecution in 1938 and 1939.”
