Horns and dilemmas: Jewish evacuees in Britain during the Second World War
Although only a short?lived experience, evacuation during the Second World War has left a profound impact on millions of people in Britain. In some ways British Jewry shared the common problems of evacuation created by class differences and a fundamental clash between town and country. Nevertheless, Jews, because of their particular religious needs and a strong tradition of anti?Semitism in Britain, had unique experiences as evacuees during the war. Indeed evacuation had a profound importance for the shaping of post?war British Jewry ? scarring those who suffered anti?Semitic hostility but also assimilating many at the cost of their religious and cultural identity.

Abstract

Although only a short?lived experience, evacuation during the Second World War has left a profound impact on millions of people in Britain. In some ways British Jewry shared the common problems of evacuation created by class differences and a fundamental clash between town and country. Nevertheless, Jews, because of their particular religious needs and a strong tradition of anti?Semitism in Britain, had unique experiences as evacuees during the war. Indeed evacuation had a profound importance for the shaping of post?war British Jewry ? scarring those who suffered anti?Semitic hostility but also assimilating many at the cost of their religious and cultural identity.
