Jewish refugees in Newmarket

 

 

 

I am currently part of a research team working on a project run by Suffolk Archives.  It is inspired by the memoir of Fritz Ball, a German Jewish refugee who lived in Newmarket in 1939-1942.  Fritz and his wife Eva lived alongside several other Jewish refugees at Palace House Stables, which is today part of the National Horseracing Museum.

The project aims to uncover the stories of these refugees and share them with a wider audience.
