  • My twin sisters and I (originally from Stepney) lived in The Chestnuts for six months in 1959-60. I was seven years old and they were six years old. Just today I thought about that time for the first time since I was a child. I Googled and found this site. I do remember “Matie”. My only other memory is all the children were taken to the West End to see a pantomime and the cast called us out to wave to the audience. I had no idea it was a home for Jewish children or in Hemel Hempstead. Thank you for the history and memory.
