Activity: Academic Talks or PresentationsInvited talkResearch


Gave an invited talk to relaunch the seminar series of the Northampton branch of the Historical Association, exploring two Jewish antifascist groups - 43 Group and 62 Group - from the 1940s through to the 1970s. This talk was set within the context of the recent BBC drama series Ridley Road, that presented a fictionalised version of 62 Group and its key players. The talk explored the key members of the groups, their origins, and also explored their varied legacies.
