Tuesday 13 November: London Discussion Group – The 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht

80 years on, we will consider the lasting impact of this event and its lessons for members of the Second and Third Generations.

Tuesday 27 November: Forum: 1938 in retrospect

This joint Network event with the Wiener Library and the Jewish Museum is part of the commemorations to mark the 80th anniversaries of Kristallnacht and the Kindertransport. A panel of historians, Professors Mary Fulbrook and Nicholas Stargardt and Dr Jennifer Craig Norton, will explore the significance of events 80 years ago, namely the German takeover of the Sudetenland,  Kristallnacht and the Kindertransport, for Britain, Germany and for the road to war. They will discuss the situation in Germany and reactions in Britain, and consider the relationship between the events of 1938 and World War II and the Holocaust. They will also consider how we should remember the Kindertransport 80 years later. Chaired by Ben Barkow, Director of The Wiener Library. For more information contact the Wiener Library or Jewish Museum.
