From the Edge of the World is an anthology of largely unpublished work written by Jewish refugees who came to the UK in the 1930s, fleeing from the threat of Nazism. The idea for this collection was inspired by the story that the author's grandmother, herself a refugee, had written entitled, 'The Portrait'. The anthology is of a highly personal nature. It brings together writings by ordinary people who describe their day-to-day experiences of living under the Nazi regime, or recount their impressions of their ??new life' in England. They describe the trauma of living in Nazi-occupied Germany and how events affected everyday living, whilst worrying about events elsewhere.
