The Jewish Predicament in the Aftermath of World War Two

This talk will focus on how Jews reacted to the new and uneasy world that confronted them in 1945.


In commemoration of Yom Hashoah, Keith Lowe will be giving a talk that will examine the Jewish experience of the aftermath of the Second World War. The talk will focus on how Jews reacted to the new and uneasy world that confronted them in 1945. It will touch on the issues of continued anti-Semitism, Jewish vengeance, postwar pogroms, and the flight to Palestine; but it will also show how these themes fitted in with the broader issues that Europeans were beginning to confront as warfare drew to a close. This lecture will draw on Keith Lowe’s most recent book 'Savage Continent: Europe in the Aftermath of the World War’, published by Chalke Press, which has already received outstanding reviews from leading historians.
