Dear Genners,

My late step brother Gerhard Manfred SALINGER came to the U.K.>from
Berlin on a Kindertransport.
Is there anywhere that I can find out when he came to the UK ?
The date of arrival of every child who arrived in England on a
Kindertransport was recorded and is in the files of the former
Jewish Refugee Council in the United Kingdom.

I know this because when my husband and I applied to the Beth Din for
a marriage authorization in 1956, the details in his file were
accepted as proof of his Jewishness, to permit us to marry in
synagogue.

I don't know who currently holds the files of the JRC, but assume
these files may now be in the hands of the Beth Din. Or you could
try http://www.uel.ac.uk/rca/links.htm, which indicates that they may
now be in a refugee archive at the University of East London.
