A group of them came over to England among the refugees who were permitted to enter this country in the years immediately before the war. They were accommodated in a castle in Wales [Gwrych Castle] and set up Hachshara centres in Bromsgrove and other places, as well as a Merkaz Limmud in Manchester to which members came from the Hachsharah centres for periods of three or six months for intensive Jewish studies.
