The Kindertransport statue at Liverpool Street Station in London is a profound commemoration of a historical moment, created by Frank Meisler
and Arie Oviada. There are five children standing quietly on the statue, looking around as if they are not lost.
This statue is rooted in the Kindertransport movement of 1938 and 1939, during which 10000 unaccompanied Jewish children were sent to England
to escape persecution in Germany and Austria. These children arrived at the Liverpool Street station and received shelter from British and foster
families. However, after World War II, only a very small number of people were able to reunite with their families.
The statue conveys the profound and touching aspects of this historical event. The children’s lively and proud expression of their confidence and
determination towards the future, looking ahead. Even though they were once part of Kindertransport, they did not see themselves as victims, but
rather filled with hope.
Each child in the statue has a label with a number, which is a disturbing detail. The presence of labels and railings reminds people of what could
happen if these children were not transported to the UK. The numbers on their arms may have been their identification tags under Nazi rule, and
the railway may have taken them to Auschwitz or Belson concentration camps, rather than Liverpool Street.
The small railway line behind the statue enhances the authenticity of history. This design allows viewers to appreciate the statue while deeply
experiencing the arduous journey of Kindertransport movement and the difficulties experienced by children. This statue, with its beauty, precision,
and profound expression, has become a touching commemoration of Kindertransport.
