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.

Virtual Event: How to Be a Refugee: Simon May in Conversation with Toby Simpson

The Wiener Holocaust Library and the Institute for the History of the German Jews is delighted to co-host this event with Simon May, author of How to be a Refugee: The Gripping True Story of How One Family Hid their Jewish Origins to Survive the Nazis.

You refuse to believe that you are Jewish.
