Refuge and Asylum
- 169 Downloads
Prefaces a narrative of Christian and Jewish women’s work for refugees from Nazism with an account of preceding initiatives for refugees from Belgium in World War I and children from Republican families during the Spanish Civil War. This approach reveals continuities in British official policy on refugees which are sometimes attributed to antisemitism. Relations between Christian and Jewish relief agencies are discussed, as are the problems of subjectivity in assessing outcomes and experiences.
