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

Co-Presents to the Holocaust: The British in Auschwitz and Belsen
Date
30/01/2018 (18:15)
Location:
Windsor Building Auditorium
Description
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.

Campaigning for the Vote: Kate Frye's Suffrage Diary
Date
22/02/2018 (18:15)
Location:
Windsor Building Auditorium
Description
Kate Frye (1878-1959) kept a diary from the age of nine until a few months before her death. This voluminous diary is now held in Royal Holloway's Archives. Between 1906 and 1915 Kate was actively involved in the women's suffrage campaign, first as a volunteer and then, from 1911 as a paid organizer for the New Constitutional Society for Women's Suffrage. This illustrated talk will recount something of her life as a suffrage foot-soldier as well as drawing on her accounts of the many spectacular suffrage scenes she witnessed – such as the 'Black Friday' riot in Parliament Square (18 November 1910), Emily Wilding Davison's funeral procession through London (14 June 1913), and the riot as Mrs Pankhurst led a demonstration at the gates of Buckingham Palace on 21 May 1914.
