Great Clowes Street
Great Clowes Street is in Salford, Greater Manchester, in the north west of England.
The hostel was opened in the late 1930s to care for children brought to Manchester on the pre-war Kindertransports.
Manchester was an important hub for Jewish refugees who came to the UK. In the 1930s almost 8,000 Jewish refugees arrived in the city. The Manchester Jewish Refugees Committee, which had been set up in 1938, oversaw the running of the hostel. Its chairman was Rachel Barash.
