'It was almost a forgotten thing for a long time'

'It was almost a forgotten thing for a long time'

Nearly 10,000 children fleeing persecution were brought to Britain on the Kindertransport in 1938 and 1939.

Lord Alf Dubs and Sir Eric Reich were two of those children. They joined Kindertransport researcher Dr Andrea Hammel and Barbara Winton, the daughter of Sir Nicholas Winton - the man who organised the rescue of hundreds of children- at a special event at IWM London.

The session was hosted by James Bulgin, content leader for the new Holocaust Galleries being developed at IWM. To find out more about the project and how you can support it, please visit this page
