Lives in Limbo: Jewish Refugees in Portugal, 1940–1945

The Alfred Wiener Holocaust Memorial Lecture

Central London, Wednesday, 23 November 2022 – 18:00.

This lecture highlights the experiences of Jewish refugees fleeing from anti-Semitic persecution and from World War II to Portugal. It describes how they were treated, how they attempted to escape Europe, and how they struggled in a “no-man’s land” between a painful past and an unknown future.
