JCR-UK SIG #UnitedKingdom Kitchener Camp, Great Britain #unitedkingdom

Robert Fraser <rgfraser@...>

I have a couple of questions about this refugee camp, which was established on the coast of Kent in

I'd like to know who actually ran the camp. Was it the British government or was it a Jewish refugee
organisation? I have been told that a family named MAY had a big hand in it. Also, who funded it?
The cost of the rebuilding, the food and the pocket money the inmates got must have come from

Any ideas appreciated.
