World Jewish Relief at the Kitchener camp exhibition

World Jewish Relief
World Jewish Relief, Newsletter, July 2019

Our friends and colleagues at World Jewish Relief have very kindly included our exhibition information in this month’s WJR newsletter, and on their website.

And World Jewish Relief will be leading one of the workshops on the opening day –

1 September 2919 at the Jewish Museum in London.

I had the great pleasure to present a paper on Kitchener camp alongside WJR at a recent workshop. There is of course something very special about working alongside the organisation that rescued our fathers and grandfathers.

As ever, WJR – thank you so much for your help and support!

Note

If you have a green World Jewish Relief / German Jewish Aid form for your relative, even if you don’t wish to share the whole record, it would be really useful if we could please have a copy of the top part of it.

We have only recently realised that these give arrival date, place of origin and – crucially – camp number!

I can’t tell you how ridiculously excited we get about such things …

We have very few sources for the men’s camp number, so please do think about whether you feel able to share this information with the project.

It would be very gratefully received!

There are only four tickets remaining for the exhibition, so if you’d like to join us for the afternoon events, please do sign up quickly:
