Event description

Description

Fred Uhlman was born to a Jewish family in Germany where he practiced as a lawyer. With the rise of the Nazis in 1933, he moved to France where as he was not allowed to practice law, he supported himself by privately selling his art work. In 1936, he met a wealthy English woman, Diana Croft and later that year moved to England and married her. They settled in Downshire Hill, Hampstead in 1938. In this walk we discover how together they formed the artist refugee committee to rescue artists trapped in Czechoslovakia, about how their house became a refuge for artists and about the organisations that they were involved with. We visit sites Uhlman was known to frequent and discuss the role of his artistic friends and neighbours and consider other refugees who settled in Hampstead during this time.

This walk is part of the Insiders/Outsiders Festival and takes place during Refugee Week.

Insiders/ Outsiders is a nationwide arts festival taking place throughout 2019 to celebrate refugees from Nazi Europe and their contribution to British culture.
