Posted on January 20, 2010

Waveney will mark Holocaust Memorial Day with special events to remember the part the district played over 70 years ago. The commemorations begin with a launch event at St Felix School, Southwold.The school took care of around 200 Jewish boys, aged 12-18 over the Christmas period in December 1938. On Holocaust Memorial Day 60 local schoolchildren will re-trace the last leg of the refugees’ journey, on to Pontins in Pakefield, where the Kindertransport refugees were billeted.
