Refugees, Family Papers, and the Value of Shifting Our Perspective

On 23 November Professor Marion Kaplan delivered a fascinating talk at the Alfred Wiener Holocaust Memorial Lecture, hosted by Gresham College in London. She spoke to a full and captivated audience on the subject of ‘Lives in Limbo: Jewish Refugees in Portugal, 1940-1945’.

Professor Kaplan vividly described the experiences of the tens of thousands of Jews who pursued this perilous but exceptional escape route out of Nazi-occupied Europe at the height of the Second World War and the Holocaust.
