Hundreds gather for 75th anniversary reunion of Kindertransport refugees at Jewish Free School in Kenton

Refugees brought to the UK to escape Nazi-occupied Europe were reunited at 75th anniversary celebrations of the movement that saved them.
More than 400 now elderly people started new lives in Britain after they were sent from countries including Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia in the Kindertransport.
They gathered at the Jewish Free School, in the Mall, Kenton on Sunday for a reunion, and survivors and their families attended a lunchtime reception hosted by HRH The Prince of Wales on Monday.
The anniversary was also a time for reflection, as many of the survivors lost family members in the Holocaust.
