Most of the children transported were predominately Jewish children, thereby saving them from a terrible fate under soon to be Nazi occupation. This memorial was...More
This is a wonderful memorial to the children of the kindertransport of WW2, located close to London Liverpool Street Station. I'd recommend everyone who uses the station should at some point stop by the memorial to contemplate the circumstances.
A moving monument close to Liverpool Street Station. Others have said what it represents but when visiting you feel sadness for the circumstances that led up to the event but also happiness for those lucky enough to have arrived here.
Well worth a look.
Whenever I go toLiverpool Street Station I pass this memorial.I think that it commemorates not just the Kinder transport but all the children that did not make it.Sir Nicholas Winterton was a true hero.
This is a very moving memorial to the Jewish children who escaped Nazi Germany and includes the names of the cities that they escaped from.
I have seen a similar memorial in Berlin where some of the children would have started their journey.

Nice artwork, very touching. Important commemoration of a bit of WWII history when the UK rescued a group of desperate Jewish children who traveled to safety without their parents. Tragic that more could not be saved.
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
