European Leo Baeck Lecture Series London, 2017-18

The Difficulties of Writing Family History

This season’s topic intends to discuss the challenges which arise when writing a European-Jewish family history set in the historically and politically charged period of the late 19th to the mid-20th century. What scholarly problems does a writer encounter, what emotional difficulties does an author face – especially in terms of allowing the public access to one’s own personal history, and how can these challenges be dealt with?

Organised by the Leo Baeck Institute London in cooperation with the German Historical Institute London.

Lectures will be held at the German Historical Institute London. Places are strictly limited and must be reserved in advance by contacting the Leo Baeck Institute, London
