Jewish war-time refugee exhibition comes to Oxford Town Hall
Dr Katharina Ulmschneider (1991, Modern History) of the University’s Institute of Archaeology has been interviewed about a new exhibition, Persecution and Survival: a wartime refugee story, which opens at the Oxford Town Hall Gallery on 15 January.
The exhibition is inspired by the Paul Jacobsthal archive at the Institute of Archaeology. Jacobsthal was an eminent archaeologist who settled in Oxford after being forced to flee Nazi Germany because of his Jewish origins. The exhibition uses his experience to illustrate what life was like in Oxford for Jewish refugees.
The interview can be read in last week’s edition of Oxfordshire Limited Edition, published in the Oxford Times.
