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

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, which indicates that they may
now be in a refugee archive at the University of East London.
