Members of the Birmingham Jewish community gathered at a local churchyard last week to dedicate a memorial plaque to a five-year-old Kindertransport refugee from Prague who died in a bombing raid in December 1940.
Suzanne Marburg had been taken in and adopted by the Lloyds, a non-Jewish family, whose members died with her in the bombing.
They were all buried in the Lloyd family grave at Kingswood Unitarian Chapel, Wythall. Suzanne's mother, who had survived the concentration camps, learned of her fate when she came to England look for her after the war.
