A HISTORY event hopes to reveal untold tales of German children who visited the UK after the end of the Second World War.

The event at Durham County Record Office will describe stories about children invited to the UK to receive respite from their severe living conditions at home.

Dawn Layland, education and outreach archivist said: “This talk is part of our programme of ‘Third Thursday’ talks in which archivists and guest speakers share their knowledge of the collections they love.

“The Friends of Durham County Record Office are passionate about researching and promoting the history of our county."

The event will take place on Thursday November 15, 6.30pm-8.00pm and will reveal stories of local people’s kindness and compassion during visits to County Durham.

Places must be booked in advance and are available online from https://recordofficeshop.durham.gov.uk/pgEventResult, or by calling 03000 267 619.
