    Albert Halm OAM seems to be a person after my own heart with his focus on healing,memmorialising and challenging bigotry. I was a teacher and psychotherapist and now I am a freelance speaker challenging prejudice and racism and a human rights activist for Rene Cassin

    Albert’s death is a loss to humanity. Do you have contact with the Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR) of UK? As a Kindertransportee from Berlin to England in 1939, I belong to the AJR and will recommend reporting about Albert in the AJR Journal.
