  3. Descendants gather to remember flight to 'Paradise'

    It's 75 years since hundreds of orphaned children, who had survived the Nazi Holocaust, touched down at Carlisle airport to start new lives and today, some of their descendents will gather there again to remember the occasion.

    Windermere boys in Prague

    The children, who became known as the Windermere boys and seen here leaving Prague, were taken to accommodation near Ambleside which they described as "paradise" after the concentration camps.

    Trevor Avery is the director of the Lake District Holocaust Project in Windermere which commemorates the the way they looked after for a number of weeks while their futures were sorted out.

    He says some of their plans have had to be altered this year, because of coronavirus, but he was determined that today's anniversary would be marked.

    Quote Message: I couldn't just sit at home and think well, this is 75 years ago today, I thought no better place to do something with safe distancing, to do it actually at Carlisle Lake District Airport." from Trevor Avery
