Elizabeth: The Jewish Refugee in Charge of Black Propaganda
9 December 8:00 pm
Spies, Lies and Secret Missions: The Unsung Jewish Heroes of World War Two
Starting in late October, Jewish Renaissance and Lyons Learning Project in association with Insiders/Outsiders are hosting a series of online events exploring the hugely significant and often surprising ways in which Jews – many of them former refugees from Nazism interned by the British in 1940 – contributed to the Allied war effort.
All the events will start at 8pm
On 9 December, there will be a screening of Katharine Meynell’s film Elizabeth, inspired by German-born designer Elizabeth Friedlander, innovative typographer and creator of ‘black’ wartime propaganda, followed by a Q&A with its director and with Julia Neuberger and Julia Weiner (tbc).
