The first group of 732 young concentration camp survivors to be given refuge in Britain after the Second World War, photographed in Prague just before they left for England in August 1945.

Sir Martin Gilbert has told the remarkable story of this group of young survivors and how they rebuilt their lives in Britain in the book The Boys. A travelling exhibition based on the book also forms part of the Jewish Museum's extensive programme of Holocaust Education.

A permanent exhibition at the Jewish Museum, Finchley tells the story of British born Holocaust survivor Leon Greenman. School visits can by arranged by contacting the Museum's Education Officer.
