Re: Refugee doctors in 1930s had to re-qualify before practising in UK #unitedkingdom

Edinburgh University and the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre in Glasgow keep such records, and there are varioius memoirs of scientists you can Google. There is also the British Library's sound archive on "The Living Memory of the Jewish People."  I referenced all three of these in my article in April 2018 Shemot (journal of the JGSGB) on the Kindertransport refugees taken in by my Edinburgh family. The children were related to one of the foremost scientists who had settled in Edinburgh in the 1930's, Dr Martha Turk. Walter Tellerman's autobiography is also instructive "A Physicist's Labour in War and Peace."
