Australian Lutherans and the fate of Europe's Jews: the Janzow correspondence

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    On 18 November 1938 an article appeared in The Times in London. Sent by its Australian correspondent in Adelaide and dated 17 November, it reported that the General President of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Australia, Dr William Janzow, had announced a plan for the Synod and the United Evangelical Lutheran Church to bring refugee Jews to Australia. They would do this by raising funds for the necessary landing permits and by arranging employment. In these efforts they would be supported by the University of Adelaide's Women Graduates' Association, who were bringing women graduate refugees from Austria and Germany to do domestic work.
