Panel 10: Internment and deportation

In 1940, fearing invasion, the British government interns adult refugees from Germany and Austria as potential fifth columnists. Kindertransport boys over 16 are interned; some are deported to Canada and Australia with adult refugees. Driven from Germany as Jews, interned in England as Germans - from the 'Llandough Castle News.'

Panel 11: A Jewish farm in County Down

Many of the Kindertransport children work in agriculture. Revisit to the site of the Millisle Jewish farming colony in Northern Ireland (1938-1948). "Where are those who lived here in years that have gone? Where are the builders?" - Samuel Ha-Nagid

Panel 13: Retribution

The refugee commandos and parachutists; the volunteers to the Jewish Brigade; 1942-1945. "He hath sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound." - Isaiah.
