On 13 June 2010, the 70th anniversary of the original evacuation, eight former evacuees returned to Mousehole, where they were once again warmly welcomed. These events are recorded in the article below, which originally appeared in The Jewish News on 2 September 2010.
Following the Reunion, former evacuees, and other members of the Jewish Community, gave a Menorah (a seven-branched candelabra) to the people of Mousehole. This was presented to them at St Clement’s Chapel on 29 August 2010, when Reverend Drew delivered the following moving sermon. The Menorah has now been placed in the Chapel.
The following article, which expresses the feelings of several of those involved in the evacuation and/or the reunion, appeared in The Jewish News on 9 December 2010, under the title: Evacuation story has evoked so many moving recollections.
