 He briefly describes his life in England and refers to England's deportation of Jewish German refugees as "enemy aliens" on the Arandora Star. He reports that his mother and the remaining children in the Waisenhaus were transported to Theresienstadt and that his father established a home for evacuated Jewish children in Northampton. He describes in great detail his deportation on the Dunera to Australia in July 1940, together with other Jews and German and Italian prisoners of war. He describes his life at the internment camp in Hay, New South Wales, Australia: religious organizations, cultural activities, relationship with Australian Army and local Jewish community; his transfer with 200 rheumatic fever patients to a camp in Tatura, State of Victoria. He returned to England in 1942 when the German Jewish refugees were allowed to enlist in the Australian Military Labor Corps, return to England, or go to Palestine.
