    The 'Belsen boys' who moved to Ascot
    Shortly after the end of World War Two a group of young Holocaust survivors was flown to the UK to recuperate. Thirty of them were housed in the Berkshire town of Ascot, famous for the pomp of the Royal Ascot horse races, where they made an incongruous sight, writes Rosie Whitehouse.

    This website tells the story of the Windermere Boys, three hundred child Holocaust Survivors closely connected to the Lake District in Cumbria, UK. They stayed on the 'lost' wartime village of Calgarth Estate in 1945, an estate that was located at Troutbeck Bridge near Windermere.
