Albert Wachsman was the only child from his town, Saarbrucken in Germany, chosen for the Kindertransport. His two older brothers were in Palestine and his younger brother was hidden on a farm in France when Albert’s mother put him on a train to Cologne in February 1939. He joined youngsters travelling to Harwich, Essex, then to a holiday camp in Dovercourt, Kent, housing 2,000 children. Most would never see their families again.
