1937-2007: The 70th
anniversary of arrival of the
ninos in the UK

On 26 May 2007, children
gathered in Southampton from
as far away as Venezuela to
commemorate the seventieth
anniversary of their arrival in the
UK. More than 200 people
including ninos and their
relatives, representatives from
Spain and the Basque Country,
as well as from local authorities
in the UK, took part in a series
of events, to remember and pay
homage to the volunteers who
cared for the children in this
country. A plaque was unveiled
to commemorate the occasion.
