Posted on January 28, 2010

About 60 pupils from Lothingland and Gisleham Middle Schools caught a train to travel from Beccles to Lowestoft yesterday morning to recreate part of a journey made by Jewish refugee children as part of Holocaust Memorial Day. The children, who carried handmade replica suitcases on the trip, arrived at the station in time for the unveiling of a memorial plaque which commemorates the arrival of a kindertransport train carrying Jewish refugees at Lowestoft railway station in December 1938.
