Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Viennese grandfather #austria-czech


My Viennese grandfather, Robert Farber, came to England in February 1940,
aged 46, as a refugee. He lived in Paddington, London, and was Category C
on his alien record.

He was eventually interned by the Marylebone, London, police in the big
round up of June 1940 and sent to the Isle of Man. The Manx National
Heritage Archives do not have a record of him. Can anyone help me ascertain
which camp he might have been in?

On his Enemy Alien form it says he is German, previously Austrian. Then it
states “Nationality amended to Polish”, but this is crossed out. Can anyone
help me understand why this might be?
