Posted on December 12, 2023


The British-Austrian Jewish journalist Hella Pick, a Kindertransport child who arrived in Britain in March 1939, was the guest of honour at an event in Vienna to mark the 85th anniversary of the legendary railway rescue project.

Ms Pick spent the war in the Lake District and went on to have a distinguished career in journalism, largely on the Guardian.

The event was held at the residence of UK ambassador Lindsay Skoll, herself the granddaughter of a Kindertransport refugee.
