Oak tree is planted in tribute to Danny’s family

AN oak tree has been planted in Sheffield in memory of the family of Association of Jewish Refugees trustee Danny Kalman.

The ceremony in Endcliffe Park was part of the AJR’s project to plant 80 trees in recognition of the organisations 80th anniversary.

Danny’s father, Henry (Hans) and his uncle Eric (Erich) were sent to England in April, 1939, on the Kindertransport.
