Further Information

This letter was written in November 1940, by Alice Goldberger. Alice was herself a refugee to Britain, and was interned as a possible enemy alien due to her nationality during the Second World War. She wrote this letter in November 1940, to her friend Anneliese. In the letter Alice expresses her gratitude for warm clothing which she had been sent, and describes her work looking after children also held in Rushen. The letter documents life in Rushen for Alice and the children she cares for, and signs off with Alice keen for her friend to write back soon. On leaving Rushen, Alice would go on to run foster homes in England for orphaned children brought to Britain under a scheme to help suriving children, liberated from Nazi camps.
