The Dunera Affair
A Documentary Resource Book
By Paul R. Bartrop, Paul R. Bartrop with Gabrielle Eisen (Edited by)

Schwartz and Wilkinson Co-published with the Jewish Museum of Australia, Melbourne, 1990. First Edition. Softcover (Illustrated). Good Condition. A little creasing of the book corners and rubbing of the book edges.

The text is illustrated with reproductions of documents, black-and-white photographs and cartoons in part two. In 1940 Britain interred nearly all of the 75,000 Germans and Austrians who fled Nazi oppression. Faced with a huge security problem, Britain called upon the aid of its overseas dominions in taking some of these internees. "... One transport, the first of several projected, was dispatched to Australia. It was the Hired Military Transport (HMT) Dunera. The voyage of the Dunera has been related several times previously; this book, a compilation of original documents and photographs collected over several years, is a first time the experience of the internees has been told by them, in the words. The book also explores the role of British and Australian authorities, and reproduces official documents from government archives which show that while Australians were happy to act as jailers for the British, they were far from enthusiastic about the internees remaining once the British government decided that their release could be authorised." -- from rear panel blurb.
