This unique event combines performance, archival records and talks to delve into some of the most complex and emotionally compelling secrets of the war. After the Second World War, many non-German children were unaccompanied in Germany. The Allies’ fledgling tracing service tried to locate and, if possible, repatriate them. This event combines a 1950 BBC radio play about the child searchers with a guide to the latter’s now digitised archive, including a demonstration on how to search it.
