the families who weren’t meant to live (presented by hannah gelbart, granddaughter of a survivor) (in the focus series)

“A group of Holocaust survivors and their families gather in Prague’s Old Town Square to recreate a photo that was taken in 1945, when the survivors had just been liberated from Nazi concentration camps.

The survivors were part of a group of children flown to the UK to start new lives after World War Two. Unlike the Kindertransport – which rescued thousands of children in the early years of the war – this group had been through the concentration camps and survived against all odds.”
