The organization Young Austria was founded in Great Britain in March 1939. It offered a home from home for some 1,300 members and was closely linked with the Austrian Centre and Free Austrian Movement. Around one quarter of its members returned to Austria after the war to help build a new democratic country. Prominent members included Erich Fried, Arthur West, Ernst Eisenmayer, and Otto Tausig.
In spite of differences in political views the members still meet today in Vienna. Three generations reflect on the effects of British exile and on Young Austria. Chaired by Peter Huemer.
