This painting depicts the bronze memorials by Flor Kent to the Kindertransport children, entitled “Für das Kind” (for the child), that were installed at Liverpool Station in London in 2003, this being the station where many of the children arrived in England. It portrays a few children who were not met at all, and had to wait for hours until a charitable passing soul picked them up and fed them.
The seemingly abandoned children appear in an amorphous central shape forlornly waiting at the station for something to happen, not knowing what to expect. Images of the faces of their parents, many of who subsequently lost their lives in the Holocaust, float above the children in the heavens in anguish after having taken the unalterable decision to give up their children up to an unknown future in order to save their lives. Three compassionate angelic figures appear in the heavens strewing masses of pink and white roses upon the parents and the children. Abigail appears next to them, in the right corner within a mandala, weeping. Below, a group of toys left behind by the children mirror them by standing in a bundle staring out of the picture as forlornly as their owners.
