To celebrate Refugee Week we are posting material from our collections that relate to the history of refugees in Manchester every day. We’ll be adding the images to our Refugee Week set on Flickr.

This is the Manchester Jewish Refugee Committee’s report for the year 1948 which tells us that in June 1948 The Refugee Children Movement Committee closed down and the work for all Jewish children in the North of England was taken over by the Jewish Refugees Committee.
