WWII train trip at halfway point


Survivors of a train journey which evacuated hundreds of children out of Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia are continuing their recreation of the life-saving trip, 70 years after it occurred.

Organised by stockbroker Nicholas Winton, it was the only 'kindertransport' for Czechoslovakian children, and between March and August 1939, eight trains carried 669 children to safety.

Robert Hall is making the journey with them.
