Yes I looked up Wim van Leer just after I posted. My mum got his trade wrong. Pretty incredible stuff. He has a book that mentions Marianne which I'm tempted to see if I can get. His story is very brave, I'd like to know more about him for sure. Eva still lives in Welwyn Garden City after all this time. I've never met her, I should probably visit

Going back to your question about sponsorship. I would need to check, but I believe that the British government was not prepared to accept the financial burden of a flood of refugees, so they imposed the requirement that sponsorship and a job in the UK was required. It was pretty much left to private individuals to express the willingness to take in a refugee.

This is why one finds many unaccompanied Jewish women working as housekeepers in the 1939 register. My mother's parents employed one such women.

Doesn't sound like a very nice life for some of the Jewish Austrian Ladies! Even if they survived WW2
