A Chequered History of Britain’s Wartime Refugees

Paul Dowswell

Britain tends to congratulate itself for taking in 10,000 Kindertransport children between 1938 and 1940 but forget the half a million refugees it turned away, often with fatal consequences. Using historical sources and personal testimonies this study records how newcomers to the country faced antisemitism, with hostility fuelled by the press; their internment as enemy aliens; and the plight of Polish ex-servicemen facing Communist persecution.
