Albert Einstein led our first appeal for funds in October 1933, speaking at the Royal Albert Hall about the need for urgent action to defend individual liberty and academic freedom against the rise of fascism. Unfortunately, the need now is as great as ever. Independently-minded academics are often seen as a potential opposition, by repressive regimes and extremist groups, and are deliberately targeted. Others, caught up in conflict, can no longer work, and face the risk of deliberate kidnap or random death. So Cara’s work, to save and transform the lives of academics like these at risk around the world, continues. The most recent crises in the Middle East have led to a sharp rise in applications for help. We urgently need more funds to respond, and to continue our mission.
