Posted on December 18, 2020

Plans are in the pipeline to create a bronze statue which would commemorate the child refugees who escaped Adolph Hitler’s reign of terror in parts of Europe ahead of the Second World War. Hundreds of the children, most of whom were Jewish, arrived in Harwich on December 2, 1938. To remember the town’s efforts in the rescue The Harwich Kindertransport Memorial and Learning Trust is working to create a memorial statue and education programme.
