Former pupils of a temporary wartime Ort school in Leeds were reunited, 70 years after its relocation from Berlin. More than 100 boys aged 15-to-17 fled to Britain from Nazi Germany in 1939, along with seven teachers and their spouses. From the following year until 1942, it operated as the Ort Technical Engineering School. Eight old boys, who keep in regular contact, were at the anniversary celebration with family members and Ort officials at London’s Jewish Museum in Camden.
