“1. Ellen Davis arrived in Swansea as a bewildered 10 year old, having been put on a train in Germany without explanation, forced to leave behind her parents and the brothers and sisters she had cared for all her life. We hear about that traumatic escape, and about the impact of Nazi rule on her young life.

2. Ellen Davis shares her first impression of the childless Jewish couple she was placed with in Swansea, where she still lives.

She recounted her experiences in the book Kerry’s Children and at 91 she continues to speak out.”
