Jews recreate kindertransport train trip

Posted on September 4, 2009

Nicholas Winton with Tal Cohain, whose grandmother Hanna Slome was rescued by Winton’s Kindertransports.

From the Jerusalem Post, article on the Winton train: It took 70 years for this reunion, but when the vintage steam train pulled into London with a group of elderly Holocaust survivors, the emotions started to flow. The three-day trip from Prague – by rail and ferry – recreated the fateful journey the survivors made as children, part of the “kindertransports” organized by Winton that carried 669 mostly Jewish children to safety in England.
