Hi Robert,

Have you tried looking at the registers of the Jews Temporary Shelter, which was
based in the Stepney area? Contact details will be available via Google. Just a
chance they might have stayed there for a few days.

Happy hunting

They had only been allowed to leave Vienna with seventeen shillings, so finances
would have been very tight. I'm wondering if they had to pay for accommodation;
or if a refugee organisation in Britain might have financed it.
