Transport   Kindertransport Children’s Transport Brothers John and Walter Rosen were put on a train by their parents

Event Note

Brothers John and Walter Rosen arrived at Liverpool Street Station, where they were selected to go to The Sainsbury Home, which, within a few days, was filled with twenty-two children from Germany.

Event Note

When the English government declared war on Germany, they decided that London would be a target for aerial bombing by the German Air Force and therefore all the children in the London schools would be safer outside London, including all 22 kids living in the Sainsbury Home, who were sent to Reading, and the Sainsbury family continued to provide “pocket money” to all of the children.
