“Get them out!” In the early years of World War Two there was an extraordinary effort to rescue Jewish children from Nazi Germany, ten of whom ended up in Gloucester, at a hostel in Alexandra Road, Kingsholm. Commissioned by Gloucestershire Archives, this short film tells the story of these boys through interviews with their descendants.

There was an accompanying exhibition by History students from the University of Gloucestershire
