“The Greatest Detective Story in History” and the Search for Missing Children after the Holocaust

Part of The Wiener Library's Fate Unknown exhibition series, this event will include a talk by Professor Dan Stone, co-curator of the exhibition, and a dramatic reading of excerpts of the Burgess radio play.


In 1950, Alan Burgess's BBC radio play, The Greatest Detective Story in History, gave unprecedented and moving insight into the work of the International Tracing Service (ITS), particularly with regard to its efforts to find missing children after the Second World War. The play also captures the ways in which the Nazi period was understood in Britain in the post-war years.

Part of The Wiener Library's Fate Unknown exhibition series, this event will include a talk by Professor Dan Stone, co-curator of the exhibition, and a dramatic reading of excerpts of the Burgess radio play.
