The first of the thousands of Kindertransport refugees began arriving at Harwich in Essex in 1938.
The Jewish and non-Aryan children wore identity tags for inspection by British officials who organised their care.
These four youngsters were among 88 who arrived at Southampton aboard the US liner Manhattan in March 1939.
Many of the young refugees, like eight-year-old Josepha Salmon, arrived tired and alone.
The first destination for many new arrivals was Dovercourt Bay holiday camp, near Harwich, where they enjoyed their first meal.
In total around 10,000 children, mostly Jewish, were sent without their parents to the UK from Austria, Germany, Poland and Czechoslovakia.
Many children were taken to London's Liverpool Street station, where they entertained themselves before being taken on to hostels or foster families.
Children had to leave their parents behind and by the end of the war many were orphans.
Transport of the unaccompanied children was organised by charitable organisations such as the Red Cross.
