More than 75 students listened to Holocaust survivor Walter Kammerling talk about his personal experiences as part of a visit organised by the Holocaust Educational Trust. Mr Kammerling was among thousands of Jewish children evacuated from Austria under the Kindertransport scheme. He was born in 1923 in Vienna and was 14 when Nazi Germany occupied Austria. Mr Kammerling’s parents sent him to Britain on the Kindertransport. He was 15, but his sisters, 17 and 18, could not join him.
