It is not only German Jews, but those who were born in the old Austro Hungarian Empire that became part of Nazi Germany, who escaped to UK and were treated as enemy aliens.  The Dukes family lived in my house for 46 years  and they escaped from Vienna in 1939, where they had lived since 1911. The parents came from respectively what is now Slovakia  (near Bratislava) and Hungary (near Budapest). Their daughter had been born in Vienna in 1912 (as had a son born in 1916 but who died in Crystallnacht), and she lived until 1983. The Dukes father was interned briefly for 6 months somewhere in the London area.
