Michael Newman on British Jews wanting to find refuge in Germany

Nov 15, 2016, 10:09 AM

Passport enquiries to the German embassy from British Jews have risen sharply since the EU referendum. Michael Newman, the chief executive of The Association of Jewish Refugees talked to Tim to explain why. They touch on why Michael, as a descendant of holocaust survivors, is allowed to re-claim his ancestor's German citizenship, as well as about the political climate that forced him to make this decision and about the psychological strain, which a return to the country that persecuted their families could put on British Jews.
