Stamford Hill is the heart of London’s Orthodox community.
The property is still the headquarters of Agudas Israel, who ran the Stamford Hill hostel.
The Committee for the Care of the Concentration Camp Children discussed the concerns of some of the Boys that there was too much Talmudic study and that they wanted a better secular education.
We are building our online archive. If you have further information or material on this hostel, please contact ’45 Aid Society or fill in the form below.
Agudas Israel was led by Rabbi Solomon Schonfeld, who was a key player in the Kindertransport and the care of survivors after the Holocaust, especially children. Harry Goodman, the British Secretary of Agudas, was the head of the hostel.
