Reality is not simply there, it must be searched and won.
Of the many secrets that Cumbria holds in its heart none could be more compelling than the story relating to the three hundred Jewish children, survivors of the Holocaust, who touched down in Britain at Crosby on Eden airfield near Carlisle in August 1945.
They had been transported to the UK for recuperation and were to stay in hostel accommodation provided for them on the now 'lost' wartime village of Calgarth Estate which stood near Windermere.
We have spoken with some of these children, now much older, and have begun to discover just what that moment meant to them. We have also spoken with some of the local people of the Lake District community who remember the children being amongst them in 1945.
Remarkable archive interviews and images from several sources have also been uncovered, and this website brings them together for the first time.
