Your Family History
World Jewish Relief, formerly known as the CBF (Central British Fund for German Jewry), rescued 65,000 people from Europe in the 1930s and 40s, including many of the 10,000 children who came on the Kindertransport, thousands of men who came to the Kitchener camp and 732 child survivors from concentration camps known as 'The Boys'.
Records for 35000 people have survived and have recently been digitised with the support of the Association of Jewish Refugees, Rothschild Foundation (Hanadiv) Europe, the Otto Schiff Housing Association and World Jewish Relief.
The files trace the help given by World Jewish Relief in bringing individuals to Britain and assisting them to survive and establish their lives here. They can contain papers such as birth certificates, immigration papers, school records, letters, and financial records of welfare support the charity provided.
These files are available to you, for free. Fill in the form below to find out if we have your family records.
