Manchester facilitated the escape of some 8,000 refugees from Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia, most of them of Jewish origin, but including also Communists, Social Democrats, Liberals, pacifists and Confessional Christians, targeted by the Nazi regime. This chapter suggests that more would have been rescued by Manchester efforts, if the government had yielded earlier to demands for concessions on the right of entry to the victims of Fascism. But the history of refugees is a compound of ‘ifs’. What this book suggests is what was possible within the circumstances and constraints of the time and within the framework of real events and personalities, before the realities of genocide had made themselves known. In retrospect, of course, nothing was ‘enough’.
