German air raids on Britain - In my field as a political scientist and freelance journalist I am looking for Kindertransport participants and/or other refugees from Bavaria, particularly from Munich and Nuremberg, who experienced German bombing raids from 1940 onwards in Britain, including those who subsequently went on to a third country, such as USA or Israel. The results of this study will be published either on the Website (htt://rijo-research.de) created by me in 1999, which concentrates on Jewish history in Bavaria and Nazism, or in a book to be published later. I would be most appreciative of any information in this context. Ms. Susanne Rieger, Kobergerplatz 6, 90408 Nuernberg, Germany. Phone: (++49-911) 36 59 051
