London Underground: The beautiful but tragic story behind the statue

Posted on September 28, 2021

Right within the forecourt of Liverpool Street station, parked in front of the entrance, stands a statue of five young children. Their expressions- pensive, confused, wonderstruck- are as immortalised in bronze as the teddy bear the youngest girl is clutching. The Arrival, by artist Frank Meisler, is a memorial to the 10,000 Jewish children that arrived in Britain, seeking refuge from Nazi tyranny across Europe.
