23 But the refugees’ adherence to Viennese culture was not matched by a continuing sense of Austrian identity. In the absence of this and also of any deep commitment to specifically Jewish practices and beliefs and any desire to integrate into Anglo-Jewry, the refugees from Austria chose instead to build their new lives within the broad framework of British society, as did those from Germany. This extended beyond the formal acquisition of British nationality, though it did not go so far as to enable them to feel fully English.

This had prompted a dispute between the Propaganda Ministry, the Supreme High Command (OKW) and Hitler’s Headquarters (Führerhauptquartier) which, it is feared, would implicate the Führer himself: ‘Ich vermute, das OKW beabsichtigt, die ganze Verantwortung auf die Schultern des Führers abzuwälzen, sodaß, wenn es schief geht, der Generalität nichts anhaben kann’ (‘Kurt and Willi on the Generals’, l6 July 1941).
