Jewish Refugee Children Arriving in Harwich, 1938.
Photograph of some Jewish refugee children arriving from Germany, landing at Harwich, 2nd December 1938. These children were among the first group of 160 boys and 40 girls, aged five to seventeen, to arrive in the UK. The usual passport formailities were waived by the authorities, but each child was issued with a special form as an identity paper. The ILN reported that the children came from 'middle-class homes in Berlin, Hamburg, Leipzig and Breslau'.
