Political exile and exile politics in Britain after 1933( )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 1,510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Political Exile and Exile Politics in Britain after 1933 brings together a number of scholarly essays that shed light on a hitherto neglected aspect of the experience of German and Austrian refugees in Britain - their political activities in their country of refuge and how these were viewed (and used) by the British government and its Secret Service. This volume does not claim to be exhaustive. However, it offers a range of case studies on various issues concerning political exile and the possibility of the continuation of political engagement in exile, even in the internment camps. Most of the contributions in this volume are based on archival material that has never been used before possibly because, like the MI5 files on Karl Otten which have only recently been declassified, researchers have not been able to access them. Predictably, the majority of these essays show the political activities of men. The efforts of women which constitute the focus of three contributions therefore are all the more noteworthy

Encounters with Albion : Britain and the British in texts by Jewish refugees from Nazism by Anthony Grenville( )

3 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While much has been written about British attitudes to the Jewish refugees from Hitler who fled to this country after 1933, little attention has been paid to the ways in which those refugees perceived and depicted their (often somewhat reluctant) hosts. From their impressions on arrival, through the tumultuous events of World War II and mass internment, and on into the long period of integration after 1945, Anthony Grenville expertly traces the development of refugee responses to their new homeland. Drawing on a wide range of novels, autobiographies, memoirs, diaries and letters by Jewish refugees, he recreates the course of a complex and sometimes fraught relationship, but one that ultimately arrived at a largely settled resolution."--

Émigré voices : conversations with Jewish refugees from Germany and Austria by Bea Lewkowicz( )

8 editions published between 2021 and 2022 in English and German and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Émigré Voices Lewkowicz and Grenville present twelve oral history interviews with men and women who came to Britain as Jewish refugees from Germany and Austria in the late 1930s. Many of the interviewees rose to great prominence in their chosen career, such as the author and illustrator Judith Kerr, the actor Andrew Sachs, the photographer and cameraman Wolf Suschitzky, the violinist Norbert Brainin, and the publisher Elly Miller. The narratives of the interviewees tell of their common struggles as child or young adult refugees who had to forge new lives in a foreign country and they illuminate how each interviewee dealt with the challenges of forced emigration and the Holocaust. The voices of the twelve interviewees provide the reader with a unique and original source, which gives direct access to the lived multifaceted experience of the interviewees and their contributions to British culture"--
Stimmen der Flucht : österreichische Emigration nach Grossbritannien ab 1938 by Anthony Grenville( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the "Kristallnacht" pogrom, many Jewish men were arrested and deported to Dachau.

German-speaking exiles in Great Britain( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies was founded in 1995, basing itself at the Institute of Germanic Studies of the University of London. Professor J.M. Ritchie became Chairman of the Research Centre, whose members are Dr Charmian Brinson, Professor Richard Dove, Dr Marian Malet, Dr Jennifer Taylor and Professor Ian Wallace, with Dr Anthony Grenville as Honorary Secretary. The aim of the Research Centre is to promote research in the field of German-speaking exiles in Great Britain. To this end it organises conferences and publishes their proceedings, holds research seminars, and publishes its own Yearbook. Its members cooperate in the writing of scholarly studies, including a book about the German-speaking refugees from Hitler in Britain, Home from Home? , and a study of the Austrian Centre in London, 1939-47. Though the Research Centre has primarily concerned itself with the German-speaking refugees from Nazism in Britain, it aims to extend its scope to include German-speaking exiles of other periods and comparable groups such as the Czech refugees from Hitler or Italian anti-Fascists. Given its location near the heart of the principal centre of settlement of the refugees from Germany, the Research Centre readily provides advice and useful contacts to scholars and postgraduates working in the field

Mensch und Tier in Reflexionen des Exils( )

1 edition published in 2021 in German and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 20th century, the boundaries between human and animal were frequently renegotiated. Racism and totalitarianism changed ideas of belonging; the violence inherent to them transgressed the borders of the human. At the same time, victims of persecution formed comforting alliances with animals while on the run or in foreign lands. This volume is the first to introduce perspectives from interdisciplinary human-animal studies to exile studies
