Cara is a UK-registered charity that was founded by Sir William Beveridge in 1933 to help rescue academics being persecuted under the rise of Nazism and Fascism across Europe. Sixteen of those helped in the 1930s and 1940s became Nobel Laureates and many more leaders in their fields, such as Karl Popper, Max Perutz, Ernst Chain, Nikolaus Pevsner, Ernst Gombrich and Hans Krebs. Almost 90 years on, Cara continues to provide a lifeline to academics at risk wherever and whenever world events place them in the line of fire – Hungarian Uprising, Cold War, apartheid South Africa, Latin American Junta, Rwandan Genocide and most recently the Middle East, including Iraq and Syria.
