Suffolk Archives have been uncovering the stories of Jewish refugees who lived in Newmarket during World War II. The project was inspired by a memoir written by Fritz Ball who came to England from Berlin, with his wife Eva, in 1939. As war loomed, Anthony de Rothschild offered his family residence and stables at Palace House – now the National Horseracing Museum – as emergency accommodation for Jewish refugees. Several of them were talented musicians and this exhibition invites you to think about their stories.
Entry to the exhibition is included in the cost of general admission. And why not make a day of it by having lunch in the Tack Room, or ordering a picnic from the Bakery to enjoy in our beautiful grounds?
