Description

Edinburgh Book Launch of Breaking the Silence: voices of the British children of refugees from Nazism

Merilyn Moos talks about her latest book ’ Breaking the Silence. Voices of the British children of refuges from Nazism’ and links the differences in responses to their parents’ political pasts

Between 1933 when Hitler came to power and the start of the 2nd world war, around 70,000 refugees were admitted to Britain. Merilyn Moos’s book uncovers how their refugee parents’ experiences of displacement and loss continue to impact on the children – the second generation. It also suggests that the adult children whose parents resisted Nazism were less likely to perceive themselves as victims. At a time when the far right is growing internationally and when worldwide there are nearly 60 million refugees the discussion that Merilyn will introduce is important to all of us.
