"In the summer of 1940, when much of Europe had fallen under German domination, the British authorities instigated a harsh programme of internment or deportation of the large numbers of people fleeing Nazi oppression. This volume, written the same year - at a time when the role and the fate of the refugees was a burning issue - is a devastating critique of the government policies of the day. As committed Communists the two women authors, like the refugees they were championing, had been badly affected by the hardening in British official policy; they were dismissed from leading positions they held in the government-sponsored Czech Refugee Trust Fund in an 'apparently isolated instance of victimisation' which 'was subsequently seen to be merely a prelude to the wholesale arrest of the refugees themselves'. This work contrasts the official attitudes towards foreigners and Jews with the generosity of the general public, and makes a distinct contribution, firstly to the literature of internment and deportation, and secondly to the study of German-speaking refugees in Britain in the years leading up to mass alien internment."--BOOK JACKET
