This tiny memorial is located close to the underground station entrance and is easily missed. It is of a boy, a girl and a suitcase and is very poignant.

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.

As a teacher of WW2 this memorial is very poignant. Photographed to show my class, good to have a reminder, incase we forget.

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.

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.
