Harry Karker, a resident at Jewish Care’s Clore Manor home, who recently celebrated his third Bar Mitzvah, remembers:

“VE Day was a happy occasion! I was in Paris, there were lots of drinks and chocolate and we went to a huge party in a hall. I was in the Royal Engineers but had stopped working. I spent a lot of time in Paris, waiting for my family and I had a job finding them. There was great rejoicing. When I did find my parents, they were dancing in the streets.”
