A Morning of Memories

Our regular “Coffee and Baigel” morning was another huge success in January when over 70 people came to hear Jackie Mesrie relate the sad story of the return of her aunt’s jewels from the Holocaust in Nazi-occupied Belgium.
Sadly Jackie’s aunt did not survive the holocaust, but her jewellery and watch did, kept safe by her Belgian neighbour .
