Association of Jewish Refugees

AJR

The Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR) provides social, welfare and care services to Jewish victims of Nazi persecution living in Great Britain.

Founded in 1941 by Jewish refugees from central Europe, the AJR has extensive experience attending to the needs of Holocaust refugees and survivors who came to this country before, during and after the Second World War.

About 70,000 refugees – including approximately 10,000 children on the Kindertransport – arrived in Great Britain from Nazi-occupied Europe in the late 1930s. They were joined at the end of the Second World War by survivors of the ghettos and concentration camps.

Membership is extended to all Jewish victims of Nazi persecution and their spouses and we also welcome as members the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors and refugees, the Second and Third Generations.

Alongside the support provided by our social services department, the AJR has a nationwide network of regional groups offering members a unique opportunity to socialise and enjoy entertainment in their local area. Members also receive support from volunteers and advice and assistance on welfare rights as well as on Holocaust reparations.
