Dr Christine Schmidt and Dr Barbara Warnock
This catalogue accompanied a temporary exhibition, curated by Dr Barbara Warnock and Dr Christine Schmidt, hosted by The Wiener Library in London from October 2016 - February 2017. The exhibition examined responses to Jewish and other refugees in Britain during the 1930s and 1940s. Built on the rich collection of refugee sources held by the Wiener Library, the exhibition explores a number of themes, including governmental policy on asylum and assistance offered by humanitarian aid organisations at the international, national and local level. A Bitter Road also looked closely at the experiences of Jewish refugees in Britain, including of surveillance and detention, poverty, separation and isolation. Through the voices of refugees, A Bitter Road explores how refugees negotiated the road to safety and attempted to rebuild their lives.
