The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

The serendip­i­tous dis­cov­ery of boxes from the Lib­eral Jewish Sy­n­a­gogue’s re­li­gion school in 1915 and 1916 is a joy. Some of the con­tri­bu­tions are gen­uinely witty. Oth­ers are mov­ing. But above all one is struck by the chil­dren’s qual­ity of ex­pres­sion. As the ar­chive shows, chil­dren do not need to be refugees to be af­fected by war.
