The Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR) and World Jewish Relief (WJR) are delighted to announce a new commemorative sculpture in honour of the Kindertransport to be located at Liverpool Street Station.

The bronze sculpture, designed by the renowned Israeli artist and former Kindertransport refugee Frank Meisler, will be surrounded by 16 milestones each bearing the name of a city from where the Kindertransports departed.

Andrew Kaufman, Chairman of the Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR) said, “We are delighted to be the principal benefactor in this important project to commemorate the lives of the youngest victims of Nazism.
The statue also pays tribute to the vital role Britain played in saving thousands of children from certain death and serves as a timely reminder of the need to remain vigilant of intolerance and prejudice.”
