Gisela Feldman and her sister, Sonja Sternberg, will be visiting Windermere School to give a lecture on their experiences.
Gisela Feldman was just 15 when she boarded the SS St Louis as a refugee fleeing the Nazis for asylum in Cuba. After the SS St Louis arrived in Cuba, the passengers were told they could not enter Cuba. Turned away, the refugees were forced to turn back and head towards Germany.

The first time my daughter and I visited the school she said to me “that is a happy school no question.” The scholastic achievements of the school are evident and an easy measure for a school to demonstrate. What is hard to quantify is the holistic development of a pupil at which, in my experience, Windermere School excels.
Windermere School is such a unique community to be a part of. Not only is it based in a truly beautiful and inspiring national park, but the environment created by staff and students alike makes for an incredibly supportive, proactive, exciting and international place of learning in which everyone can thrive and be the best they can be.
