A 1940 censored cover without stamp to Mrs. Lea Frucht in London, sent by Dr. Leopold Frucht in A.J.C. Huyton, an early internment camp for German Jewish refugees.
Huyton was an internment camp near Liverpool holding Jewish refugee civilians from Austria or Germany who were considered possible enemy aliens and thus posed possible threats to security. They lived for a period of time behind barbed wire surrounding old council houses near Liverpool. Dr. Frucht had been interned here for a time, and sends this censored letter to his wife Lea in London in 1940.
