Recorded Webinar: Teaching Jewish histories

By Shirli Gilbert & Bethany Gaunt, Sir Martin Gilbert Learning Centre

Where Jews appear on school curricula, they tend to appear as victims, particularly in the context of the Nazi genocide. The vibrant diversity of Jewish life in preceding centuries is underexplored, and students are given little context for understanding the growth of antisemitism.

This webinar delves into this vibrant richness and in order provide a necessary preface for study of the Holocaust, outlines an enquiry which highlights the experiences of Jewish refugees who came to Britain in the 1930s and the responses they encountered in their local communities and in British society more broadly.

This webinar was recorded on 27 March 2023.
