NB: in the interests of brevity, this list covers chiefly events in the north of Britain with some events in other parts of the country – and a few international events. For details of other regular vigils, visit the Quaker Peace Exchange pages. Also worth checking out, the events pages on the Network for Peace website (used as a source for many of the dates below – thanks NfP!). And don’t forget our Facebook and Twitter pages

    Remembering the Kindertransport to 7 April – The Peace Museum in Bradford will be telling the story of the Kindertransport children through items and personal effects, including suitcases, belonging to two children who were evacuated to Britain prior to the outbreak of the Second World War. Almost 10,000 children, mainly Jewish, were brought to the UK to escape Nazi persecution; many never returned as their families became victims of the Holocaust. http://peacemuseum.org.uk/upcoming-display-remembering-the-kindertransport/
