A Kindertransport memorial is set to be erected in the Essex port town of Harwich to commemorate the child refugees who came to the town. The planned statue, which is in construction by artist Ian Wolter, will show five children descending from a ship’s gangplank. Also planned is a town trail, audio bench and new information boards which will be strategically placed around the town. However, it will only be realised if £140,000 is raised – with around £70,000 already raised so far.
