Posted on May 28, 2009

When plans to evacuate civilians from towns and cities were put into action on 31 August 1939, millions of children’s lives were immediately changed. Outbreak 1939 will incorporate the stories and exhibits of a number of those children, including a teddy bear belonging to a little girl evacuated on 3 September 1939; and an exercise book kept by Celia Horwitz, a German Jewish girl, who arrived in the UK in December 1938 as part of the Kindertransport and was later evacuated to Norfolk.
