AJR Experts and Members Contribute to Research on Refugee Visas to the UK


Two members of the Association on Jewish Refugees (AJR) are profiled in a recent article regarding refugee visas to the United Kingdom during World War II.

AJR historian Tony Grenville also contributed to the report.  The article focuses on research being done on the stories of Jewish women who fled Germany and Austria for the United Kingdom by obtaining jobs as domestic servants.  The Wiener Library in London's Russell Square holds a number of documents relating to domestic service visas that have provided the basis for this research.
