Further Information

This suitcase was bought over to England by Bob Norton when he and his family sought refuge due to the increase in Nazi persecution. This small suitcase did not contain many items, but has been lovingly cared for and used for many years since. The stickers indicate where the case has been, both before and after it came to England.
