In June 1940, about 100 children from Jews’ Free School, London, were evacuated to the Methodist village of Mousehole. Remarkably, most of the evacuees quickly integrated into village life, and were accepted by the villagers as their own. During this talk, author Susan Soyinka, will give a flavour of this heart-warming story, using illustrations and readings from her book.
