Posted on April 22, 2022

The inspiring wartime story of a Devon village and church community which offered sanctuary to Jewish child refugees has been turned into a play. Talaton a Wartime Refuge tells the story of how six children who fled Poland as part of the Kindertransport evacuation in 1939, were given homes in the East Devon village of Talaton for the duration of World War Two. The play will have its premiere in nearby Whimple on Monday, April 25.
