To be British and Jewish

Posted on October 23, 2009

As a Jew my feelings toward Britain have always been mixed. My grandmother and her siblings came to Britain on the Kindertransport in 1939 with 10,000 other Jewish children. This British hospitality very likely saved their lives and certainly afforded them freedom and opportunity in beginning life anew. On the other hand their brother was slain in the infamous Hadassah Convoy Massacre of April 13th 1948 that was directly facilitated by the British.
