2015 Lecture Series: The New Jewish Question? The Holocaust, Israel, Antisemitism

The Wiener Library is delighted to announce that a new series of public talks and lectures will begin this month with a conversation between Professor Deborah Lipstadt and Anthony Julius on the subject of 'Contemporary Antisemitism in Europe' on Thursday 26 February 2015 at 6.30pm.

Discussion events will continue to be held over the coming months, bringing together thinkers and professionals to discuss issues of great contemporary concern. The participants will share their thoughts on key aspects of the often fraught and complex relationship between the Holocaust, Israel and modern-day antisemitism.

The purpose of the series is to encourage debate and reflection about the significance of the Holocaust in the context of contemporary politics. The agenda of the discussions has been kept deliberately broad and the events are designed to be accessible to a general audience. We hope you will be able to join us.

Please note: the venue for the opening lecture will not be at the Library, but at Lecture Theatre, RCOG, 27 Sussex Place, Regent's Park.

Admission is free but spaces are limited. You can book your place for the opening lecture here.

The next three events in the series will be as follows:

Monday 23 March 2015, 6.30pm

Tuesday 31 March 2015, 6.30pm

Wednesday 29 April 2015, 6.30pm

This series has been made possible through the generous support of Nimrod Capital.
