Jewish Refugees to Boston, 1940 #general


To All:
In the year 1940 two British passenger ships, the "Nova Scotia" and
the "Newfoundland" made eleven Atlantic crossings >from Liverpool,
carrying 1,052 passengers to their Boston, Massachusetts destination.
The majority of passengers were Europeans who's home countries, Germany,
Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland had been taken over by the Nazis.
The largest number of these, 888, were Jews, fortunate enough or
far-seeing enough to have acquired travel documents in time to
escape the oncoming holocaust.

I have contributed transcriptions of the full passenger lists to the
Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild
