It was an impressive site to have seen all 42 bikes lined up at the station in Berlin waiting for us to depart.

HRH Prince William, Duke of Cambridge (@kensingtonroyal) visited Yad Vashem today, as part of the first ever, official British royal family visit to Israel. He toured the Holocaust History Museum, met with two Holocaust survivors, Paul Alexander and Henry Foner, both survivors of the Kindertransport rescue initiative; participated in a memorial ceremony in the Hall of Remembrance, visited the Children’s Memorial and signed the Yad Vashem Guest Book.

@jasonistar and @leonard.rau are nearly there for their fundraising goal. Thank you so much for those that have already supported us. Please donate big or small to help us reach 10,000£ that will represent 1£ for each of the 10,000 children brought from Berlin to London 80 years ago.

Awsome #berlin2london riders hitting the #englishlanes 🚲 ☀️
@worldjewishrelief
It was a great to meet you all and finally have the opportunity to spin with the whole group (thanks for giving me your wheels!). Totally blown away by all your achievements; not only did you cover a vast mileage with loads of smiles on your faces (despite what must have been sore legs etc) but the warmth of the group shone through - what an amazing team spirit!

It has been a privilege, an honour and a pleasure to ride with the @worldjewishrelief #berlin2london group today.
They rode 600 miles from Berlin to commemorate the remarkable escape of 10000 Jewish children from Nazi Germany in 1938 in the #kindertransport.

It was particularly special to ride with 3 generations of one family, including the grandfather who escaped aged 18 months, his son and his 14-year-old grandson.

So wonderful to cheer in our #berlin2london riders at #liverpoolstreet. They have accomplished so much in the last 6 days and all in the name of the 10000 children who were rescued by the #kindertransport. Proud of the role our organisation played in instigating it & of the people who stepped up to help out. #kindertransport80cycle #kindertransport80

Phil began his #Berlin2London cycle from his grandmother’s flat in Berlin. She was saved by the #kindertransport but tragically never saw her parents again.

And they’ve done it! The #berlin2london cyclists have just triumphantly crossed the border from Germany to Holland. For the #kindertransport children, this was the moment they knew they had escaped death. Everyone is incredibly moved by this significant moment in the journey. #kindertransport80cycle

Fascinating to see this newsreel from 1939 on the #kindertransport & to note the positive British attitude. Glad on #worldrefugeeday⁠ ⁠ to be commemorating this wonderful initiative with the #berlin2london #kindertransport80cycle

‪Day 3 was gruelling. 146km with 1000m of climb + rain & headwind. It was beautiful but tough. We’re now halfway. Tomorrow we cross into Holland. For the #kindertransport children this meant freedom. #berlin2london #Kindertransport80cycle#kindertransport #kindertransport80 #charitycycle #halfwaythere

Today, the #berlin2london cycle passed through #Hannover where the riders stopped to pay their respects at the Holocaust memorial. It was extremely moving to read the names & dates of deportation for everyone who was killed. #neverforget #HannoverHolocaustMemorial #kindertransport80cycle

Time to meet another rider: this time it's Bernard Verby from Manchester who has been profiled in the @jewishtelegraph where he says 'I have been involved for more than 12 years with the Manchester World Jewish Relief committee which helps to raise funds for Jewish people and others who still live well below the poverty line, so even now, 80 years on, some people's lives have not improved, although they have survived to tell the tale'.

Our oldest rider (by a matter of months) is 81 year old Anthony Rau. Many of his family were involved with the CBF (our founders) back in the 1930’s and helped play a significant role in the rescue of tens of thousands of Jews from the Nazis, including cousins who took in Kindertransport children. Although just a small boy at the time, Anthony has strong recollections of the CBF being mentioned at home and of being aware of the importance of their work. Which is why when Anthony heard about the #Berlin2London ride he didn’t hesitate to sign up and even convinced his son Leonard and Leonard’s friend Jason to take part. Anthony says “The 6 day challenge is the greatest I’ve ever undertaken and I’m very much looking forward to honouring the family contribution made in the 1930s and 1940s”.

Ian’s father never talked about his own upbringing so it was only in the wake of the Brexit vote when Ian approached World Jewish Relief looking for documentation to apply for a German passport that an incredible family history opened up to him. Our case files revealed a wealth of details about his father that he never knew, including that his dad and uncle were on the very first Kindertransport having been plucked from an orphanage in Hamburg where they were placed after their mother died. Their own father was still alive then but our records sadly confirm that he later died in a concentration camp. The records reveal young men determined to do well, find employment and housing and later join the armed forces. They show the welfare and assistance given to them by World Jewish Relief (as the CBF). We are proud of the role of predecessors played in helping these young men and thousands of other refugees and are delighted that Ian and his nephew Tim are cycling the #Berlin2London #Kindertransport80cycle in their memory.

What’s the most obvious thing to do when you have 3 children under the age of 5 and a job as World Jewish Relief’s Communications Officer? Sign up for a 600 mile cycle of course! As part of her role Rebecca regularly sees the original case files we hold on the kinder and other Jewish Refugees that our organisation helped in the 1930’s and 40’s. She says “Knowing what they went through and the incredible hardship that they and their families endured will keep me going when I may want to give up. Being part of an organisation that was instrumental in their survival is a huge privilege.” We are so enormously proud of Rebecca for taking on this challenge and for all the blood, sweat and tears that she has put into training.

Meet Richard. He's riding the Berlin to London Kindertransport Commemorative Cycle in memory of Frank Meisler, a ‘Kind’ who went on to be an acclaimed sculptor. His work includes the 3 world famous Kindertransport statues in Berlin, Hook of Holland and London Liverpool street. Richard and the other riders will cycle past all of them in their epic journey. Richard says training is going well and he is motivated by taking part in what is sure to be a historic ride. He adds “I have known people who were either on the Kindertransport or are their children but we all have a connection with the horrific persecution of Jews perpetrated by the Nazis” To find out more and support Richard in his quest go to his fundraiser page: https://www.facebook.com/richard.barnett.902. #berlin2london #kindertransport80cycle #kindertransport80 #kindertransport #jewishrefugees #childrefugees #cyclechallenge #charitycycle #cycle #epiccycle #roadcycling #fundraiser #fundraising #600milesin6days #frankmeisler #frankmeislersculpture #kindertransportstatue #liverpoolstreet

Meet Dan, his grandfather Hans and great-aunt Ruth came to the UK on the second ever Kindertransport. After saying goodbye to their mother, they never saw any of their family again. Dan says ‘80 years on I will be following the route of my Baba’s journey, cycling over 600 miles in 6 days in his memory’.

Meet Philip, he lives in Indonesia but is travelling all the way to Europe to take part in the epic Berlin to London Kindertransport commemorative cycle, marking 80 years since World Jewish Relief (as the CBF) instigated the Kindertransport that saved the lives of 10000 children. Philip is riding in memory of his father John and his aunt Marian, both of whom came on the Kindertransport. John went on to become a lawyer and Marian a social worker. Amazingly their parents survived the concentration camps and the family were able to be reunited.

In just over two weeks’ time, World Jewish Relief is launching its most ambitious ever challenge: The Berlin to London Kindertransport commemorative cycle. To commemorate 80 years since our founders (the CBF) instigated the Kindertransport which saved the lives of 10,000 children, 42 intrepid cyclists will ride the route of the first train from Friedrichstrasse Station in Berlin via the Hook of Holland and ferry to Harwich to finish at London Liverpool Street. Over the coming weeks we will be celebrating some of these valiant cyclists and the individual ‘Kind’ they are riding for. First up is Phil Harris:

Phil’s journey will be extra emotional as he is beginning it at the very same flat his 16 year old grandmother, Ilse, left from almost 80 years ago. Her family managed to get her a place on the Kindertransport and send her to safety in London. She arrived with one small suitcase and no English but went on to become a dressmaker and have a wonderful family of her own. Tragically she never saw her parents again and later discovered they had perished in Aushwitz.
Where one journey ends another begins and just two days after completing the ride, Phil will be married in a Jewish ceremony to his partner Philly. They’ll be welcoming their first child soon after.

To find out more about Phil and Ilse or to support Phil's fundraising efforts go to: https://www.worldjewishrelief.org/philharrisberlinlondon

We’ll be posting updates from the ride to tell you more about Phil’s extraordinary journey. . .
