Hanna Slome shares her memories with reporter Caroline Tilley

Hanna Slome, 84, was 14 when she was put on a Kindertransport train to Harwich by her mother in May 1939. She said: “When my mother said goodbye she said ‘if anything happens to me don’t cry for me. I’m dying for my beliefs.’ “That left me with something to hang onto.” She never saw either of her parents again, both died during the Second World War.
