Great article. I spent many happy student hours in the Archway flat described in this article and can confirm it was all that. twitter.com/elashton/statu…

Amazing the amount of coverage Johnson has got today for deciding to go ahead with something that was already going ahead, and the only reason there was any doubt about it going ahead was him

"In an era of political heat, there is something attractive about the banal politics of the mayor's office." @Dannythefink on fine form combining two of his great interests: British politics and city mayors. buff.ly/2OK9BLK

Ashcroft Poll will be dismissed by some because of source, however anyone who has knocked a door will know that the focus group stuff is accurate. We do ourselves no favours ignoring this stuff. It's ok though, we can rebuild and reconnect with people, we just have to want to.

#OTD 80 years ago in 1940 the Soviets began mass deportations of Poles and other citizens of prewar Poland to Siberia. @Roger_Moorhouse assesses the number of all Polish men, women and children deported between 1940 and 1941, at 1,5 million. Many of them did not return.

Hannah Pick-Goslar, known as 'Hanneli', the best friend of Anne Frank. She survived the #Holocaust because her family had a 'Paraguayan' passport protecting her from deportation. All such passports were Polish fakes produced in Berne🇨🇭. She's with Ambassadors of 🇵🇱🇵🇾 t2d8ensHg

Beyond the generally mad politics he’s had to navigate - Simon has given big jobs to young talent, added heavyweights at VP level and led much needed cultural changes at the JLC. A breath of fresh air and I am grateful to have worked with him. twitter.com/sjrbsimon/stat…

Thanks to those who joined me today #HolocaustMemorialDay to listen to my mother’s story of surviving Bergen Belsen with her sisters. Today is my mother’s yarzheit - the Hebrew anniversary of her death three years ago - a special day to share her story. m.youtube.com/watch?time_con…

Incredible: @Dannythefink's mother, grandmother, aunts were among the 3,262 recipients of Latin American passports identified on the Ładoś List! Read their story in his thread & check the list to see whether your relatives were also aided by #BerneseGroup! instytutpileckiego.pl/en/instytut/ak… twitter.com/Dannythefink/s…

It appears that the grandmother, mother and aunts of British journalist and member of the House of Lords @Dannythefink may have survived the Holocaust thanks to being among the thousands of Jews issued with false South American passports forged by Polish diplomats in Switzerland twitter.com/Dannythefink/s…

She was never bitter and neither was he. They loved life and freedom and this country. So it’s traditional to finish a thread with the word ends/. But at this moment of freedom I finish the thread with begins/.
Margarethe died at 1.15am on 26th February. Her daughters sail to America and all remember the moment they see the Statue of Liberty. Mirjam meets my father, a survivor himself of deportation to Siberia. She becomes a maths teacher and together they have a long and happy life.
My grandfather is in New York securing the supply of his library on the Nazis, which is to provide one of the main sources of evidence at the Nuremberg trials. A telegram has been sent to him carrying this news.
25 January 1945 The train crosses into Switzerland. Margarethe has sacrificed everything, given every scrap of food to her children, protected them against all, but she has seen her girls to freedom.
Very sad news — I was part of the launch team at Derbyshire headed by the brilliant @louisa_compton & it was one of few places at the BBC focused on original journalism + scoops, the stories of ordinary people and doing things differently. twitter.com/MarkDiStef/sta…

I agree. It’s terrific that all these players and managers took time for this, given all their requests they have. twitter.com/tracyanno/stat…
Thread time! Meet Mary Burchell, one of the most successful romance writers EVER. Over 110 Mills & Boons to her name. Got an image of her in your head now, right? Bin it. Because Mary is a Righteous Gentile. She wrote books to fund her efforts to help Jews escape Nazi Germany

This is a very interesting interview with someone I always felt was an important player. Here Murray literally argues, directly argues, that the left must defy common sense. newstatesman.com/2020/01/corbyn…
The engineering of HS2 is complicated; the politics is very simple: you can’t claim to be a government committed to infrastructure and cancel the country’s biggest infrastructure project; you can’t claim to be the party of the north and cancel the new north/south railway line

24 January 1945. There is one more day before the train reaches freedom. Today some more of the prisoners are removed to a civilian internment camp, where many survive the war but some do not. The Wiener family continues to the border. Tomorrow will come the end of the story.

On such things does life hang - @Dannythefink moving thread on his Mum's family's miraculous passage from Belsen twitter.com/Dannythefink/s…

Ruth (the oldest sister) says they cannot get off. Their mother is too ill to move. They cannot move her. The guard pauses, shrugs, says “Stay then” and passes on to the next carriage. In this moment their lives are saved.
My Mum remembers it as bitter cold and that expulsion from the train surely meant death for them all. By this point my grandmother was desperately weak and ill. An SS Guard comes through their carriage and says to them “Off!”.
On 23rd January 1945 there is a calamity. The Germans decide they have many too many people on the train. More than half will have to leave the train before freedom in Switzerland. My Aunt records them in her diary as being at Ravensbruck camp on this day.
