An excerpt from the Association of Jewish Refugee's 'Refugee Voices' project.
Refugee Voices is an ongoing oral history project documenting the experiences of those who were forced to flee to the UK as a result of Nazi policy, their pre-war lives, the process by which they came to Britain, and experiences in their adopted homeland. Commissioned by the Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR) the interviews total more than 450 hours of film.
In this excerpt Natalie Huss-Smickler recounts her journey from Vienna to the UK where nuns protected her from searches by SS officers.
