The Introduction places the study in wider historiographical, theoretical and methodological context. It explores approaches to Jewish refugees from Nazism as well as refugee and forced migration studies in general and how the two rarely connect because of the self-contained nature of the former and the ahistorical tendency of the former. The memory of refugee movements is outlined as is the concept of the journey and concepts such as naming, the concept of illegality, performativity, space and place which inform the study as a whole. It also highlights the importance of incorporating the voices of refugees in the movements, many of them totally neglected to date, covered in this study.

Keywords:   Jewish refugees from Nazism, Forced migration, Journeys, Naming, Place and space, Performativity, Illegality
