General Information:

Source - Mrs Sylvia Fraser
Glimpses - Other Jews, of varying degrees of religiosity, arrived in Kenya in various capacities. One was Sylvia Rosenberg Fraser, who came from South Africa after the war. She married a Gentile farmer in the Thika area and lived cut off from Jewish life; nevertheless 'Shelanu' saw fit to publish an admiring article about "A War Hero and a Leader in Our Midst" shortly before she died in 2003.
