‘Helpful Information and Guidance for Every Refugee’. A page from the guidebook handed to German Jewish refugees on their arrival in England. The booklet included tips on what to wear (nothing too loud or ostentatious), political activity (do not take part in any political activity) and how to behave to bus drivers (remember to say thank you for penny tickets). Hanns came to rely more on the advice of a sixty-five-year-old German spinster named Mrs Frank to help him adjust to his new life in London.
