A Kindertransport child on the modern day migrant crisis

Dame Stephanie Shirley spoke to Anne Diamond about live as an immigrant during WW2.

Dame Stephanie Shirley:

"I think memory plays funny tricks on me. I just cannot believe when I was so lucky as a today people don't have similar humanitarian feelings towards children."

"I was extraordinarily lucky."

"I think people are much more selfish these days. Affluence has made us very materialistic."

"It's the fear of immigration which really drove the BREXIT decision."
