IAJGS 2018 – Incarceration and Legal Restrictions

Incarceration & Legal Restrictions on European Refugees in the UK during the 1930s and 1940s

My talk explores the experience of refugees from continental Europe, who, having fled the ravages of Nazism in mainland Europe, found their arrival in the UK sometimes less than welcoming. I  spoke about The Kindertransport, other camps in the UK, and also about Internment on The Isle of Man.

I highlighted routes of entry to the UK, the earliest official records available and where they can be found. I also covered some of the initial destinations and refugee experiences of those who came over, and highlighted sources available to help you to find out about your family members.

I illustrated the presentation with rich case study examples, and the handout is comprehensive and signposts you to a wide variety of resources which will help in researching the lives of family members who sought refuge in the UK from the ravages of WW2.

Here are the presentation slides and the handout from my talk at the IAJGS Conference in Warsaw:
