London (Central) – Kindertransport Statue (The Arrival)

I don’t usually use this entrance into Liverpool Street Station, so have missed just how much of a wonderful statue this is. It’s a commemoration of the 10,000 Jewish children who were able to escape from Nazi Germany just before the outbreak of the Second World War and who arrived at the station.

The statue was designed by Frank Meisler who as a child was evacuated from Gdansk (or what was then the Free City of Danzig) to London Liverpool Street station.

There’s a parallel statue at Gdańsk Główny railway station (above photo which I took in 2016) by the same sculptor.
