“It was an amazing experience
and I had a very personal
reason for doing the ride as I
wanted to honour the memory
of the previous generation of
my family who had played
an active role in establishing
the Central British Fund in
1933, having collaborated in
bringing over the children
and working with them to help
meet their particular needs”
“We set off from Frank
Meisler’s haunting Berlin
statue depicting two children
facing West - to safety, and
four facing East - to death.
After inspiring speeches from
representatives of the British
and German governments,
student Rabbi Josh Weiner
explained the significance
in Jewish teaching of
remembrance through
physical acts, and how we’d
be carrying the weight of
history on our shoulders.”
REBECCA SINGER
“What a magnificent and
unforgettable experience
it was, bringing this
important historical event
to life through the ride
and the stories it revealed.
As we continually crossed
or caught site of the train
tracks we were reminded
of the children who had
left their homes and
families and were heading
for a foreign land.”
