This movement had its origins in letters to a number of newspapers in August 1945 from a group of public figures, including Gollancz, appealing for rations to be contributed to relieve distress in Europe (MSS.157/3/PR/q.v.). An invitation meeting at the Conway Hall (MSS.157/3/SEN/1) was followed by a mass-meeting at the Albert Hall, a delegation to the Minister of Food and Memorial to the Prime Minister (MSS.157/3/SEN/2). The first three years' work of Save Europe Now is described by Mrs Peggy Duff in the booklet referred to below. The discovery of the SEN records described in this catalogue corrects the entry in C. Cook and others; (eds.), Sources in British political history 1900-1951(1975), p.232.
