As many Maestro! clients will know, Milena Grenfell-Baines escaped the Nazi's in 1938 on the 'Last Train to Tomorrow'.
She continues to work tirelessly to educate and inform audiences around the country (last year giving over 80 talks, this year 40 already) and was the driving force behind raising the money and commissioning the Memorial honouring the escape of 669 mostly Jewish children from the Nazis, organised by Sir Nicholas Winton.
We hear tonight that the memorial has been badly damaged in an apparently carefully planned attack. The vandalism appears to be aimed at disfiguring the shrine’s most evocative feature, a train window engraved with handprints depicting adults and children forced to bid farewell in heartbreaking circumstances.
Jan Hunat, a Czech engraver who designed the engraved glass, said he believed it was struck from behind with a hammer after being carefully dislodged from its wooden frame with a chisel or screwdriver.
The Czech Prime Minister, billionaire Andrej Babiš whilst being a donor to the memorial has also fermented nationalism with his demands that "Migrants need to go home".....
Our thoughts are with Milena tonight as this blatently anti-semitic attack brings shame on the entire nation.
Today The Cleveland Orchestra and Music Director Franz Welser-Möst embark on their nineteenth tour together, with eleven performances scheduled across Asia in seven cities: Taipei, Macao, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Nanjing, Wuhan, and Beijing. They are joined by world-renowned pianist Daniil Trifonov.
