Many don't consider what happened to Holocaust survivors after camps were liberated, especially the thousands of orphaned children that had survived.

In 1945, 732 of them were brought to the UK to recuperate and begin a new life.

The 732 child survivors were brought to the UK by the Central British fund, now @WJRelief, who also organised the Kindertransport scheme.

The CBF lobbied the government, who agreed to grant the children two year visas provided not a cent was spent on them

Money to care for the child survivors was raised privately, largely by the Jewish community.

The 732 children, of whom only 80 were girls, were sent to hostels around the UK. Their story is the forgotten final chapter of the Kindertransport scheme.

“My people were brought here chains. Your people were driven here to escape the chains fashioned for them in Europe. Our unity is born of our common struggle for centuries, not only to rid ourselves of bondage, but to make oppression of any people an impossibility,”MLK #Holocaust
"There are Hitlers loose in America in the World today in both in high and low places, As the tensions and bewilderment of economic problems become more severe, history scapegoats, the Jews, will be joined by new scapegoats, the Blacks." MLK #HolocaustMemorialDay
"The Hitlers will seek to divert people’s minds and turn their frustrations and anger to the helpless ... Whether the Black man and Jew shall live in peace will depend upon ... how effectively they reach the minds of the decent human beings to halt this deadly diversion." #HMD

Tomorrow is Holocaust Memorial Day #HMD2019 Many of my relatives were murdered in the Holocaust solely for being Jews. Some also survived due to the extraordinary actions of people who showed the best of humanity 1/
The following pays testament to a few of those relatives who were victims of the Holocaust & also to my sister-in-law’s family, who were victims of the Cambodian genocide & 18 year old H’s family murdered in the Sudanese genocide #hmd 2/
My dad Len fled Nazi Germany alone aged 13 in 1936, when his father sent him to England. Arrested on his 16th birthday, the British interned him in Canada as an ‘enemy alien’. His school championed Len’s cause & he was sent back to the UK. He's now a lovely 95 yr old #HMD 3/

A thread on #LabourAntisemitism: We now see @UKLabour ‘moderate’ MPs who formerly opposed @jeremycorbyn’s leadership, led by former front-benchers such as @hilarybennmp and @YvetteCooperMP fighting to prevent a ‘No-deal’ #Brexit. 1
We see that on an issue where they hold principled views, they will explore all avenues: defying party policy; working across party lines; exploiting parliamentary loopholes and even defying constitutional conventions. They have demonstrated great resourcefulness 2
Yet after Corbyn’s 2nd leadership victory they folded like a house of cards and fell in line, knowing his politics was antisemitic, allowing their avowed ‘anti-racist’ party to become institutionally antisemitic, as they knew it would. 3
