Telling the story of ordinary people saving the lives of 10,000 children by Mike Levy

About this event


At a time when governments refused to help, ordinary people took up the mantle, often risking their lives in the process. These heroes helped to save roughly 10,000 children. Mike Levy uncovers all these stories, and many more, paying attention to the role of numerous women, in, what until now, has been a largely male dominated historical narrative. in addition Mike will talk through his latest research into a Kindertransport hostel on an estate at Cockley Cley, Norfolk, for the UK Holocaust Map.

Mike’s book Get the Children Out! in support of child refugee charity ‘Safe passage’ is out now.

This talk is organised by Norfolk Record Office in partnership with Norfolk Schools of Sanctuary as part of the educational initiative, A Day of Welcome
