Cataloguing a piece of Jewish refugee history in London

When the B’nai B’rith Leo Baeck (London) Lodge ceased its activities in 2017, a chapter of 74 years of dedicated service for the Jewish community ultimately ended. Established by German speaking refugees from central Europe at the peak of World War II the association quickly blended into British society and became a valuable member of the Anglo-Jewry community. In order to preserve and share its unique history, the Lodge archive is now being catalogued by The Wiener Library.
