The Journey Exhibition Trail Hero

Welcome toThe Journey

Step back in time to Nazi Germany and be immersed in a history that will challenge, engage and inspire. The Journey tells the story of Leo, a 10-year-old German Jewish boy growing up in Nazi governed Berlin in the 1930s. His family makes the brave choice to send him to safety on the Kindertransport as a child refugee to the UK. Leo’s story poses the big life questions. Who are we? What gives us identity? How do our choices affect others?
