We fled Hitler
If you scroll down, you'll find a decent piece which I wrote last year, to coincide with a play about the Kindertransport, the trains which were organised by British well-wishers to help Jewish families get their children out of Nazi Germany. Ten thousand children escaped the death camps because of this initiative, which was organised from London. A handful of these kids came to Scotland and I met three of the survivors in a flat in Glasgow's South Side on a cold afternoon last spring. The article introduces the personal testimonies, which are very moving.
