Jewish former child refugee on being looked after by Clement Attlee        Guardian News        22 November 2018

 

Paul Willer, 90,

has revealed that when he was 10

he stayed with Clement Attlee and his family

for four months until the beginning of the second world war.

 

Attlee, then leader of the opposition,

sponsored a Jewish mother and her two children,

helping them to leave Germany in 1939 and move to the UK,

and he invited one of the children – Willer – into his home.

 

The Labour party politician neither publicised

nor sought to make political capital from his visitor.

 

The interview was conducted

for the Refugee Voices Testimony Archive

of the Association of Jewish Refugees

Let's end the myths of Britain's imperial past        G        2011

 

David Cameron

would have us look back

to the days of the British empire with pride.

 

But there is little

in the brutal oppression and naked greed

with which it was built that deserves our respect
