The Essential Link: The Story of Wilfrid Israel
2 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 2 December, there will be a screening (followed by a Q&A with the film’s director Yonatan Nir) of The Essential Link, a recent documentary about German-Jewish businessman, art collector and still too little-known wartime saviour Wilfrid Israel, who played a major part in making the Kindertransport a reality.
