The Harwich Kindertransport Memorial and Learning Trust (HKMLT) is pleased to present a very special exhibition at the Harwich Arts & Heritage Centre from Wednesday 24th – Wednesday 31st January 2024. The exhibition, “Safe Haven – Leslie Brent” highlights his amazing journey on the Kindertransport – one of the largest acts of rescue in the whole of the Nazi era – and the life he made for himself in Britain. He was one of the 10,000 mostly Jewish children who were sent to safety in Britain from 1938-1939, and like many of the children, he arrived in the Essex port of Harwich.
