X Troop: The Refugees Who Fought the Nazis
4 November 2021 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 4 November, Leah Garrett will talk about her inspiring new book, X Troop: The Secret Jewish Commandos of World War II, the incredible saga of the German-Jewish commandos who fought in Britain’s most secretive special-forces unit – but whose story has gone untold until now.
