Posted on December 15, 2022

A TALKING bench that plays the testimonies of Kindertransport children has been unveiled in Harwich.

The bench has been installed by the Harwich Kindertransport Memorial and Learning Trust in the Mayor’s Garden off Main Road.

It includes stories told by those who were evacuated from Nazi occupied Europe to safety in Britain.

The humanitarian rescue mission, which started in December 1938 and continued until the outbreak of the Second World War, saved approximately 10,000 children.
