I have just read the articlethat my father wrote on Middlesbrough, especially concerning the closing of the shul. He mentioned that his 3 year old grandson sat in the President' s box - a box that he had occupied for many years both as Treasurer and as President. In fact, I remember sitting there as a child when he was in the box. I knew that a photo was taken at the closing ceremony and I have at last found it - Sruli Bookey at 3 1/2 years old. I am sure that there were never many opportunities for such photos like on this occasion.
Through the efforts of the shul, the cheder and Rev Kersh, Middlesbrough Judiasm lives on. This only happens where the community looks after the children and Rev Kersh was par excellence. Matthew Bookey email@example.com
I am currently in the final year of my history degree and as my dissertation I am conducting a study on the kindertransport. I intend to look at memoirs of the kinder, parents, foster families, organisers, etc, in order to discover how successful the movement was. I want to look at the experiences of those involved, both good and bad, as well as the views/consequences today, to see what was particularly successful and what, if anything, would have been done differently.
It would be greatly appreciated if any of your readers could help me in any way with my studies, Debbie Jiggins firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks very much for changing my name back. I wish I had known more people in the Jewish community then. It's a very impressive website. Ruth Barak email@example.com
