This hidden treasure makes me feel sad but happy at the same time… sad because it touches on the appalling events leading up to the Holocaust. But happy because it focuses on a survivor – and there’s a wonderful coincidence at the heart of the story.
What a beautiful object this is.. one of my favourites of all the wonderful objects in the Ashford’s Hidden Treasures series. A bit too large to fit in the house though! Many thanks to Anthony Coulls, curator at the National Railway Museum in York.
