Re: Jews fleeing Austria in 1939 #austria-czech

My parents were also medical students in Vienna, and after Jews were excluded, my mother fled in March 39 via Switzerland by train, but continued on to the UK where she had a domestic service visa. My father(they were already engaged) followed in July - he wasn't Jewish, so was able to finish his studies and come to London where they were married. I remember my mother saying the passengers all applauded as the train crossed the frontier into Switzerland.
