Between 1938 and 1948, Millisle was home to a small Jewish community based at a farm at Ballyrolly House. Many of the children attended the nearby Millisle Primary School.
Headmaster John Palmer ran the school and a Mrs. Mawhinney taught the under 8s. The Kindertransport children sat next to and learned with local children such as Bobbie Hackworth. He was one of the interviewees on a 30-minute documentary made at the primary school generations later. Written and produced by 8 and 9-year-olds from Primary 5 and their teacher Linda Patterson, the documentary is entitled ‘A Kinder Place, A Different World’.
