Susan Soyinka told the story of the evacuation of the Jewish Free School to Cornwall during World War Two and a remarkable story of integration into village life. Ruth Barnett still remembers being forcibly parted from her parents, aged 4, leaving Berlin on a kindertransport to life in rural England and her traumatic post-war return to Germany.

Together they discussed the impact of war and displacement on children.
