Untold Stories: The Kitchener Camp

A special lecture on the Kitchener Camp at the Wiener Library to mark Holocaust Memorial Day 2011.

To mark Holocaust Memorial Day 2011, the Wiener Library will be holding a special lecture by Prof Clare Ungerson on The Kitchener Camp, a largely forgotten camp established in 1939 for 4000 male Jewish refugees situated near Sandwich in East Kent.

Clare Ungerson is Emeritus Professor of Social Policy at the University of Southampton. As a resident of Sandwich, she has been able to draw on the memories of local residents, gaining unique insight into the circumstances of the Kitchener Camp. Her research has included archival research at the Wiener Library, the Imperial War Museum, and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, which holds the papers of Norman Bentwich, who, as an Executive Committee member of the Central British Fund for German Jewry, was one of the prime movers behind the Kitchener Camp.
