When Celia Lee was evacuated from London to Norfolk at the outbreak of war, it was the second time in less than a year that she had been uprooted. The previous winter she was among the 10,000 Jewish children evacuated from Germany and surrounding countries as part of the Kindertransport, an attempt to get as many of them as possible out of the Nazis’ reach. Then, she was Cilly-Jutta Horwitz, a 12-year-old from Hamburg. She would never see her father again.
