The Windermere Children

Tune In or Stream April 5 at 10/9c

Child survivors of the Holocaust are brought to Windermere to recuperate with the help of volunteer therapists. Without their families, they must find kinship in each other. "The Windermere Children" is the stark, moving and ultimately redemptive story of the bonds they make with one another, and of how the friendships forged at Windermere become a lifeline to a fruitful future.

About the Show

August, 1945. A coachload of children arrive at the Calgarth Estate by Lake Windermere. They are child survivors of the Nazi Holocaust that has devastated Europe’s Jewish population. Carrying only the clothes they wear and a few meagre possessions, they bear the emotional and physical scars of all they have suffered.
