An index card for Lily Abraham who arrived on the Kindertransport in 1939. This card, completed by the Hampstead Garden Suburb Care Committee for Refugee Children, detailed her circumstances in Germany; "Expelled from home, nothing to eat. Most urgent."
Nothing is known about the origin or background of the Hampstead Garden Suburb Care Committee for Refugee Children. Nonetheless these index cards are evidence that the committee worked in connection with the Movement for the Care of Children from Germany (British Inter-Aid Committee). These index cards contain personal data and passport photographs and were seemingly produced following a British Government initiative to simplify admittance procedures for children up to the age of 17 years.
