Event description
Talk: The Forgotten Exiles - Jewish Refugee Domestics in Britain, 1938 - 1945

About this Event

A Second Generation Network Event

Although over twice as many refugees from Nazism came to Britain on so-called Domestic Visas than via the Kindertransports, this subject has received far less attention from researchers and the media. Dr Jennifer Craig-Norton will give a fascinating talk about her research into this neglected subject. It will also be a chance for members of the First, Second and Third Generations to share their own experiences, positive and negative, of this scheme and those of their relatives.

About the speaker:

Dr Jennifer Craig-Norton is an Honorary Fellow of the Parkes Institute for Jewish/non-Jewish Relations at the University of Southampton. She is editor (with Christhard Hoffman and Tony Kushner) of Migrant Britain: Histories and Historiographies: Essays in Honour of Colin Holmes.
