Description

Co-Presents to the Holocaust: The British in Auschwitz and Belsen

Professor Tony Kushner
University of Southampton

Dr Aimee Bunting
Godolphin and Latymer School

Long after 1945, memory of World War II in Britain was not linked to the Holocaust despite an intimate connection. Best known is the liberation of Belsen. More marginalised were the 1400 British prisoners of war in Auschwitz. Our lecture explores how these British liberators and POWS wrote and re-wrote their experiences from 1945 through to the twenty first century, juxtaposing Britishness, Jewishness, universality and particularism through the autobiographical process.
