Shortly before the coronavirus shut down the university and much of the world, we organised a conference, Cambridge: City of Scholars, City of Refuge, 1933-1945.  Co-sponsored by CRASSH, Trinity College, and the Jewish Historical Society of England, and organised in association with the Insiders/Outsiders Festival, the conference brought together a stellar group of scholars and scientists to begin to tell the story about the way Cambridge – university, colleges and city – became a haven for refugees from Fascist Europe in the years 1933-45 (we were inspired in part by a recent book that tells a similar story for Oxford).
