Good episode? Give it some love!
Refugee Week is an annual event that celebrates the contributions of refugees to Britain. Many refugee stories have found their way onto our repository shelves. In this special episode, we’re sharing just a few of them. We’re also going beyond the documents, as two of our records specialists interview their own parents about their refugee experiences and connect those stories to the documents we hold.

Documents from The National Archives used in this episode:
DO 142/416; ED 128/66; MH 8/9; MH 37/322
