<![CDATA[Being Jewish After Balfour: The 1917 Revolution]]> 23/11/2017 – In this talk, Dr James Renton will discuss how the Balfour Declaration transformed what it meant to be a Jew in the world.]]> 23/11/2017 : In this talk, Dr James Renton will discuss how the Balfour Declaration transformed what it meant to be a Jew in the world.



In this talk, Dr James Renton will discuss how the Balfour Declaration transformed what it meant to be a Jew in the world. Rather than a story of Jewish empowerment, he will argue that this revolution was shaped by the interests and power of imperial states and a global political system. At its heart, the talk will grapple with the controversial question of how much control do Jews have over their own identity?

In October 1917, only a minority of Jews believed in Zionism, and many were strongly opposed. Jews who were desperate to be accepted as loyal citizens in the countries that they called home were horrified by the idea of a Jewish nation. Even those who were indifferent to Zionism shared the mainstream assumption that the movement was a utopian dream. This situation changed overnight with the Balfour Declaration- an event that permanently altered the politics of being a Jew.

Dr James Renton is the author of The Zionist Masquerade: The Birth of the Anglo-Zionist Alliance, 1914-1918, and co-editor with Ben Gidley of Antisemitism and Islamophobia in Europe: A Shared Story? He is Reader in History at Edge Hill University and Visiting Fellow at the European University Institute.

<![CDATA[SOLD OUT: Judith Kerr and Michael Foreman in Conversation]]> 05/12/2017 – Two of Britain's most loved authors discuss the inspirations behind some of their books and illustrations]]> 05/12/2017 : Two of Britain's most loved authors discuss the inspirations behind some of their books and illustrations



Judith Kerr and Michael Foreman come together to talk about the inspirations behind some of their most loved books.

They will discuss their writing for children on wartime experiences, why it is important to pass on history to children, and the emotive power of telling stories.

Judith and Michael have enthralled and inspired generations of children with their bestselling novels and illustrations, which include classics such as The Tiger Who Came to Tea, When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit as well as War Boy and The General (written by Janet Charters).

The event is being organised by the Jewish Museum London as part of our Remembrance public programming.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear two of the UKs best loved authors and illustrators of children’s literature talk about their work and influences.

The conversation will be chaired by Erica Wagner.

Erica Wagner was born in New York City. She is the author of Gravity: Stories, Ariel's Gift: Ted Hughes, Sylvia Plath and the Story of Birthday Letters and Seizure, a novel; she is the editor of First Light: A Celebration of Alan Garner. Twice a judge of the Man Booker Prize, she was literary editor of The Times for 17 years and is now contributing literary editor for Harper’s Bazaar and a contributing writer for the New Statesman. She was the recipient of the Eccles British Library Writer’s Award in 2014, and she is a Lecturer in Creative Writing at Goldsmiths, University of London. Chief Engineer, her biography of Washington Roebling, the man who built the Brooklyn Bridge, was published this year by Bloomsbury.

Born in 1938 in Pakefield, a fishing village in Suffolk, Michael Foreman grew up during the second World War, an experience which has had a lasting and creative influence on his work. (His illustrated biography War Boy has shaped a new generation's understanding of life in World War II.)

He studied painting at the Lowestoft School of Art (1954-58) and then Graphics at St Martin's in London (1958-60) followed by the Royal College of Art (1960-63.) While at the RCA his first book was published - an anti-war picture book 'The General' (written by Janet Charters.) A travelling Scholarship from the Royal College took him to the United States. He drew throughout America and contributed drawings to many US magazines. He then travelled worldwide as a travel illustrator.

His travels have provided locations for many of his children's books which frequently promote peace and concern for the environment.

His career has spanned over 50 years and nearly 300 books including collaborations with many eminent authors, from Shakespeare to Michael Morpurgo.

Doors: 6pm

Cafe: 6-7pm and 8-8:15pm

The propaganda posters of the Second World War have become cultural icons – most notably ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’. We imagine the wartime landscape papered with morale-boosting exhortations designed to uplift the British people and keep them fighting the good fight.

This talk will unpick that myth to reveal a rather different version of how the Home Front was addressed by posters. Both government and people were very wary of propaganda, which was seen as totalitarian, un-British and tainted by its role in the First World War. The Ministry of Information’s early attempts at persuading the British nation – including Keep Calm - failed miserably, and for the rest of the war, they only produced informational and instructional designs, from ‘Dig For Victory’ to ‘Careless Talk Costs Lives’. People were told what to do, not what to think.

Yet propaganda posters still appeared, so where did they come from? Sources as diverse as London Transport and Bovril produced advertising aimed at rousing the national spirit, but the biggest source was the Army, which produced some of the best-known and most controversial images of the war, propaganda which may have changed the course of British history after the war ended.

Susannah Walker studied English Literature at Cambridge, followed by Design History at the Royal College of Art and Victoria & Albert Museum. After working as a curator then television producer, she now writes and lectures about design.

Susannah has published three non-fiction books: about contemporary ceramic design, 1950s modernism and Home Front Posters of WW2. She also runs a website, Quad Royal, about post-war graphic design and history.



Her latest book, The Life of Stuff will be published by Transworld in May 2018.

Explore the memories of the Freud family in Hampstead. Sigmund Freud escaped Nazi occupied Vienna in 1938 to 'die in freedom' and his home in Hampstead became a magnet for other European refugees. But he was not the only Freud to leave his mark in NW3. This walking tour profiles Sigmund and his friends, his daughter Anna whose work with children continues to this day in Maresfield Gardens and his son, Ernst, an architect whose modernist houses remain as testament to his talent.
