Current and upcoming exhibitions
This timely exhibition explores the individuals, organisations and campaigns that have fought back against antisemitism in France, Britain and Germany over the century since the time of the Dreyfus Affair.
This temporary Reading Room exhibition displays some of the Library's collections of Tarnschriften, rare anti-Nazi resistance pamphlets, that were distributed secretly throughout the Third Reich in the 1930s and 1940s.
In the first part of the Library's event series taking place at the Manchester Jewish Museum, distinguished guest speakers will discuss patterns of persecution and survival found in Jewish and other archives.
Take part in an exciting launch event that will feature talks by the co-curators, Professor Dan Stone and Dr Christine Schmidt, special guests, a drinks reception, and an opportunity to view the 'Fate Unknown' travelling exhibition.
The workshop will also feature family research support services available from Manchester-based partner organisations and the opportunity to register for one-on-one consultations with the Library’s expert researchers.
This virtual revision session, aimed at GCSE and A-Level students, will utilise sources from the Library’s unique archive to examine the Nazi’s creation of a ‘Racial State’. It will explore the radicalisation of the state; Nazi racial ideology; increasing antisemitic policies and actions as well as the treatment of Jews in the early years of war by looking at the development of ghettos and deportations.
To celebrate the publication of 'Alice's Book', which uncovers the truth about a stolen cookbook and tells the story of a family torn apart by the Nazi regime, author and historian Karina Urbach will be in conversation with leading political journalist Lord Daniel Finkelstein.
