Further Information

This certificate forms part of the Zdenka Husserl Collection. It certifies that fifteen trees have been planted in Israel, in honour of Alice Goldberger. The trees were planted in 1967, to mark Alice's 70th birthday. Alice was a former refugee, who had been held in Rushen Internment Camp on the Isle of Man as a possible enemy alien due to her German nationality during the Second World War. Alice ran the kindergarten there, and at the end of the War became the matron of two houses which acted as foster homes under a scheme to help orphaned children liberated from Nazi camps. The children, along with Alice and a small staff, lived first in Weir Courteney and then at Isleworth in what was known as Lingfield House. Alice was a mother-figure for the children and much loved.
