REMEMBERING: Herbert Levy remembers his time as a 10-year-old Jewish boy in the internee camp at Bradda Glen, Port Erin

When Herbert Levy was 10 years old, he spent a summer in Bradda Glen holiday camp in Port Erin. It was 1939 and he was a Jewish internee sent to the Isle of Man with many other ‘alien enemies’ in Britain. He said: ‘We tried to leave Germany for a long time but other countries just wouldn’t have us. But after Kristallnacht, the night the synagogues were smashed, Britain agreed to take Jewish children on a kindertransport train and I was one of those children who came over.”
