The Shifting Policy of British Internment and Deportation, 1939-1940

Why were German and Austrian Jewish refugees interned? Why were so many deported out of the country?


Why were German and Austrian Jewish refugees interned? Why were so many deported out of the country? Roger Kershaw, who has written extensively on the subjects of immigration, emigration and aliens, will talk about the policy of internment during the Second World War and the invaluable family and political research resource that is The National Archives.

Naomi Levy, whose German-born father, then Hermann Gutmann, was deported to Australia on HMT Dunera, will talk about his experience of internment there based on his 1941 Diary. Does your family also have a Diary or other memorabilia connected to British internment during WWII? If so, please do bring it along as there will be an opportunity to share and chat following the talks.
