Talk: with Jonathan Wittenberg
‘They were my Teachers and mentors, and I miss them deeply’
Reflecting on the life and teachings of Rabbi Albert Friedlander and Rabbi Hugo Gryn, together with their families and students.
Albert Friedlander fled Germany as a child after Kristallnacht; Hugo Gryn survived Auschwitz. Both went on to teach and preach in Britain and across the world. Each of them reflected in different ways on the horrors of racism, the nature of identity and what a truly plural society needs to look like. Their legacies are of supreme importance today, when populism is again on the rise.
