How Writers Remembered the Jewish East End with Nadia Valman
After World War II many East Enders permanently left the neighbourhoods where they had grown up. For Jews whose parents and grandparents had arrived in the East End in the Victorian period this also signified the end of the vibrant Jewish community life that had developed here in the first part of the twentieth century. In this online talk Professor Nadia Valman of Queen Mary University discusses how Jewish writers remembered their childhood in the East End of the 1930s.
