Jewish ‘home’ or orphanage in 1940s England #unitedkingdom


I know that my mother was brought up in a Jewish orphanage or ‘home’, and I think I remember her saying the home was on the South Coast.


So, how do I go about finding out more about this ‘home’?

I don’t know where to start on my research but I am sure if there are good sources of information then someone in this group knows.


My German Jewish grandmother (Kaufmann geb. Schimmelpfennig) was a victim of the holocaust, dying in Berlin in 1938. My mother’s father escaped to Brazil. My mother was brought to England in 1933 and naturalized British at age five.
