Abstract

Henry Rothschild was among the first ‘Hitler émigrés’, leaving Germany in 1933 for university life in Cambridge. Rothschild went on to become one of the most significant figures in post-war craft, setting up his shop Primavera in London, and then Cambridge. He was a retailer, exhibitor, collector and patron of craft, particularly in the field of ceramics. This chapter examines the experience of Rothschild alongside the other European émigrés who came to Britain, considering to what extent they carried with them a national or cultural identity, and how this identity impacted on their engagement with the cultural life of Britain.
