The Isle of Man

The Isle of Man (in the Manx language: Ellan Vannin) is an island situated in the Irish Sea, roughly equidistant from England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Although it is not technically part of the United Kingdom (it does not send a representative to the Parliament in Westminster), it is a British crown dependency and the British monarch is Lord of Man.

The Jewish Community

In addition to the small resident Jewish community on the island, a number of Jews were among those interned on the Isle of Man during both World Wars.
