Ann Rolett has put a huge amount of time and effort into writing and getting published a piece about the Kitchener camp project online, to help get the word out in the USA and beyond.

‘Kitchener camp: An extraordinary rescue of Jews to Britain in 1939’ is published in the Spring edition of Avotaynu: The International Review of Jewish Genealogy; it was copy-edited by descendant Lynne Parsons, who also contributed some valuable additions to the article.

The editors of Avotaynu, who also worked on the article before publication, have very kindly given us permission to reproduce it here. We are very grateful for all the time they put into this with our descendants, and for the large amount of space they have given the project to try to help us reach more Kitchener families.

I note that the back cover of this issue includes a mention of the excellent POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw, which is a co-host, with the Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute, of the 38th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, which is being held at the Warsaw Hilton from August 5-10th, 2018.

As ever, many thanks indeed to Winston Brill for allowing us to add some of his family materials to this publication – to help us to reach more families.

If anyone else would be happy to contribute similar permission for their materials to be more widely used in this kind of context, please do get in touch and let us know.
