1942-45 International Red Cross enquiry forms from a Jewish refugee in Australia to his family in China (5) or Slovakia, two sent via Cairo (one also via Turkey), various Red Cross cachets, a few faults. All with write-ups/translations. The sender was a "Dunera Boy". [Early in the War, the British decided that refugees from Europe were a security risk, even though most were Jewish. The "Dunera" was sent to Australia, crowded with as many mainly Jewish adults & children as possible. Conditions were appalling & the incident created an international furore] (Qty 6)
1940-41 airmail covers to the United States (which was still neutral) from Jewish residents of Vienna (mostly) or Berlin, a couple with sender's name including "Israel" or "Sar(ah)" on the flap as required by the Nazis, various censor tapes & cachets, a few faults. (Qty 12)
