Hans-Georg and Manfred Loewenhardt arrived in England on 3 March 1939. The brothers were in one of the ‘Kindertransporte’ which saved almost 10,000 children – 75% of them Jewish – from Germany, Austria and East European countries. When they set foot on English soil, Hans-Georg was 14 and Manfred 12 years old. They had left their parents Siegmund and Grete and their eight years old sister Ulla behind. In the sparse luggage they were allowed to take were three family pictures, two of them showing the children in happy times. Six years later, the pictures were all that was left to them of the family past in Dortmund-Hörde. Their parents and sister had been murdered in Auschwitz.
