Circus Jews Under National Socialism

1st July 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

£8 – £10

The true stories of Jewish circus artists between the world wars are told with sensitivity and humour by Stav Meishar, a circus artist and academic. This lecture is based on over seven years of extensive research and combines photos from personal albums, recorded testimonies, and personal stories. Additionally, Stav will share excerpts from her show ‘The Escape Act’, a show based on one of the stories she has uncovered – that of a Jewish acrobat who survived the Holocaust hiding in a German circus.

Tickets £8 members, £10 non-members. This event will be held over Zoom. Please contact rabbi.natasha@newlondon.org.uk upon ticket purchase for the Zoom details.
