The Children in War Memorial
“The Children in War Memorial” is a charity which has been inaugurated for the purpose of erecting an international monument dedicated to children who have been affected by war and conflict throughout the ages.
This will be conveyed by a sculpture designed and created by Maurice Blik, a renowned artist who, as a child, was incarcerated during WW2.
Our aim is to install a work of art which is significant and timeless, to be located at a busy metropolitan location, such as within the City of London, where the footfall is greatest, thereby maximising public awareness.
Finance will be raised by appeals from charitable trusts, educational bodies, lottery funding, as well as private, corporate and public donations.
Primary endorsement has been granted by the Research Centre for War Child Studies at the University of Reading.
