Holocaust exhibition

Update: This exhibition has now finished.

A teddy bear belonging to a child refugee dating back to 1938 is the centre piece of an art exhibition on display in the Crypt of Canterbury Cathedral.

The teddy bear belonged to a ten year old boy who escaped Nazi persecution in Vienna through the Kindertransport.

The little boy Otto Schachter became the father of Artist Simon Shaw who’s Kindertransport exhibition continues in the Crypt.

Transport is on display in the Eastern Crypt until 14th February. Normal Precinct charges apply.

The Crypt is open daily from 10:00 – 17:00 Monday to Saturday and 12:30 – 14:30 on Sundays.
