About the event

Sussex was a place of refuge for many who were fleeing fascism in the 1930s: the Basque children who came after the bombing of Guernica, the Kindertransport children of 1938/9, single Jewish women who came as domestic servants, and a variety of other Jewish refugees of all ages and backgrounds. Meeting the needs of these refugees were a number of newly formed refugee committees staffed by volunteers as well as numerous individuals who took refugees into their homes, employed them or cared for them in other ways. This talk will discuss the experiences of some of these refugees and the people and organisations in Sussex and elsewhere who helped them.

We welcome back Jennifer Craig-Norton, an Honorary Fellow of the Parkes Institute at the University of Southampton, for our next event which will take place on Zoom only.
