Last month, in Berlin, some 40 people gathered outside a block of flats on Gieselerstrasse 12. They came to commemorate seven Jews who were rounded up by the Nazis and sent to their deaths in Auschwitz. Among the guests was 87-year old Ilse Newton of Golders Green. The last time she had set foot on this street was in 1939 with her parents, Hugo and Flora Philips, who took her to the train station where she joined other children as part of the Kindertransport that brought her to England.
