KINDERTRANSPORT IN THE NEWS (2006)

 

Welsh haven for Jewish children

Between December 1938 and the eve of war, 10,000 children travelled to the UK in an operation known as the Kindertransport. For a lucky 200, their sanctuary was Gwrych Castle, near Abergele, north Wales, which was given to the government as a place of refuge.

And for the first time in 60 years, some of those who lived at Gwrych have returned to their childhood haunt.
