Naomi Harris, Volunteer Specialist Worker at Jewish Care’s Holocaust Survivors’ Centre Shalvata therapeutic service, says, “My strongest memory of VE day is that we moved house on that day, my parents, my sister Judy and me, from a rented flat into a new home in NW4, my parents’ house having been bombed in Stepney so that we had moved around a lot.

“When the car drove up the road, flags hung from every house and lamp post, people were congregating in the street and, aged 5, I thought the celebration was that we were moving in!”
