Suzanne Sampson describes how two members of the Gestapo came looking for her mother.
A page from the booklet produced by the German Jewish Aid Committee in London in the years before the Second World War giving advice to refugees from Nazi Germany. The booklet makes it clear that the Jewish community, and not the British government, is to be responsible financially for the refugees who are instructed to 'refrain from speaking German' in public. The Committee was set up in 1933, the year in which the Nazis came to power. Between 1932 and the end of 1939 the Jewish population in Britain increased by about 75,000, most people being refugees from Germany or Austria.
