The negotiations that led to the creation of the Representative Council had their beginnings during the First World War, when a number of Jewish leaders got together to secure the release of German, Romanian and Turkish Jews interned by the British government as *enemy aliens.

Many immigrants of Eastern European origin nevertheless joined the army as volunteers, and two, of Manchester birth, won the Victoria Cross. The war was also a cultural watershed. Eastern European Jews were brought into closer contact with their native British neighbours, and this intensified the anglicization that was to continue throughout the inter-war years.
