A bronze sculpture by Frank Meisler, erected in front of the Główny train station (Gdansk, PL). 

Installed in 2009 at the request of Gdańsk Mayor Paweł Adamowicz and commemorates the Kindertransport of German Jewish children who were exposed to increased persecution after the Nuremberg Laws were passed. They were brought from the German Reich or from countries threatened by it via Hoek van Holland to Great Britain and departed from here, among other places.
