Ainsworth Wates and Marianne Teleki 1935-1939 and helping Jewish refugees

I have written an account of the facts, so far as I have been able to ascertain them, relating to my parents' meeting, Marianne coming to England, their courtship, marriage and honeymoon and Ainsworth's travels in Europe and help to Jews during this period.

It was written primarily for my immediate family, who are aware of the general background and people referred to, but this may not be clear to others.

It includes an account of my father's meeting with Käthe Lichtenstern and the subsequent help given to her family by him and my grandfather, Leslie Wates. Here is Käthe's own account of how she came to England.
