'We have to move on'
I was part of the team working on this amazing Suffolk Archives project . It was inspired by a memoir written in German by Fritz Ball, a Jewish lawyer and musician who came to England from Berlin, with his wife Eva. They lived in a refugee hostel at Palace House Stables in Newmarket, which is now the National Horseracing Museum. Fritz’s memoir was written in 1946 when he and his family were settled permanently in America. He wrote about how his life changed under Nazi rule in Germany and his impressions of English culture and society.
The project uncovered the stories of these refugees and shared them with a wider audience through music, dance, exhibitions and printed resources for schools.
