The children in Sambar and Taruca had an incredible day at the National Holocaust Centre last week as part of their topic on Refugees. They followed the journey of Leo, a German Jewish boy who travelled to England and safety on the Kindertransport in 1938. The children had the opportunity to explore the different rooms which portray Leo's story and examine artifacts from the period. In the afternoon, they listened to survivor, Steven Mendelsson, who was forced to undertake the journey when he was a child. As they left the centre, they placed a stone in the pile in memory of the Jewish children who died during the war.
More photos can be found in the Gallery.
