Written by two Communist refugee women in the last half of 1940, but not published until 1968, this book chronicles the impact of British policies on the countless refugees who fled to Great Britain from Hitler's Germany and other European countries prior to WWII. The authors look at the exodus from the refugees' home countries, the refugees' relationship with the British public, the revoking of the right of asylum, and the internment of many refugees, especially those who spoke German. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Paper edition (unseen), $19.50. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
