About

An event to mark the eightieth anniversaries of Kristallnacht and the Kindertransport, held in collaboration with The Wiener Library, the Pears Institute for the Study of Antisemitism and the Second Generation Network Speakers: Professor Mary Fulbrook, University College London; Professor Nicholas Stargardt, University of Oxford; Dr Jennifer Craig Norton, University of Southampton 2018 marks the eightieth anniversary of momentous events in the history of Nazi Germany, the violence of Kristallnacht, the Anschluss (the incorporation of Austria within Germany), the German takeover of the Sudetenland, and the inception of the Kindertransport, all of which took place in 1938. Each of these episodes was a landmark in German, British and Jewish history as Europe moved towards the outbreak of war and as German persecution of Jews developed and culminated in a policy of extermination. Our panel of three experts, Mary Fulbrook, Nicholas Stargardt and Jennifer Craig Norton, will explore how these events unfolded, analyse their historical significance and ask, how we should remember them today?
