Opinion: Holocaust Memorial Day tribute to Bradford refugee hostel

Posted on January 28, 2022

IF it hadn’t been for a mix-up over passports, Albert Waxman would never have made it to the safety of a house in Manningham.

Albert was 14 when he left Germany and came to the UK on the Kindertransport, the rescue system taking 10,000 Jewish children out of Nazi-occupied Europe from 1938-39.

Arriving at a holiday camp in Kent, after an exhausting journey, Albert was one of 24 boys chosen to stay in a hostel in Bradford set up by Oswald Stroud, founder of Drummonds Mill.
