Innocence and Experience: Childhood and the 1930s Refugees
1 December 1:30 pm - 2 December 5:30 pm
Insiders/Outsiders, in partnership with the Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies, University of London, is hosting a free online conference called ‘Innocence and Experience: Childhood and the 1930s Refugees’.
Child psychology and therapy were disciplines developed in pre-war Germany and Austria, and Britain benefitted hugely from the refugees’ expertise in the area. Many of the children who came to the UK as refugees or Holocaust survivors were themselves of course in need of support. This online conference brings together expertise in the field from the UK, Europe and Israel, and presentations deal with diverse aspects of childhood amongst the refugees from Nazism, including education, therapy, literature, art, photography, and play.
