“I didn’t want to be a war photographer in the first place, I wanted to show landscapes and peace, which is what I am doing now, and which I find much harder than photographing war. It doesn’t take much eyesight to photograph someone dying in front of you.” A mother and her child in a refugee camp from the war in Bangladesh. Photo and quote by Don McCullin. 1971.
Late 1930's. German, Austrian and Czechoslovakian children of Jewish descent were permitted to leave their countries and families on the Kindertransport; a train bound for Britain. These children ranged in age from infant to 17 and were placed with families in Britain. Many never saw their parents again.
