Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Association of Jewish Refugees in Great Britain (AJR) was founded in the summer of 1941. Up until that point the care of Jewish refugees had mainly been in the hands of the German Jewish Aid Committee, which had hardly any German Jewish representatives. It was this committeee which had organised the rescue operation of those Jews who wanted to enter Britain and which had financially supported those who were unable to earn their own living. The foundation of the AJR marked the wish of the refugees to take the settlement of their problems into their own hands.
