"It's very important that today this wonderful lady Zelka, who was the little girl in the blue coat in the iconic photograph has agreed to be filmed today," she said.

Sarah went on: "It is an iconic photograph because Zelka said, 'Because I'm a mum now and I have my daughter Maya, and I wish that all the displaced refugees children, women, parents, everyone, to realise there is help, you can rebuild, we are going to help you rebuild. You are not on your own…"

Sarah continued. "What we've done today with the Montessori group and myself is we've decided to support completely her dream which is to build a memorial site across the road from where we are now, which was very close to where the war originally started in order that we remember every single person that gave their lives in the war."
