Worcester College

Worcester College are pleased to announce our Michaelmas Term
Massada Public Seminar

Professor Renee Poznanski of Ben Gurion University in the Negev
will be speaking about

Jewish? French? Transnational? Jews in the Resistance in WWII France

A great number of Jews participated in the Resistance in France during World War II. What was the aim of their struggle? To fight against the Occupation in France? To restore the Republican Regime? To save the persecuted Jews? To help install a communist regime? While questioning the relevance of the term “Jewish Resistance,” this talk will challenge the accepted notion of a “French” Resistance, and examine what is at stake in this complex issue.

The presentation will be followed by discussion and drinks.

The event is free and open to all.
