Lisbon, 1939-45: the untold story of Portugal and the Jewish refugees
31 January 2011
Dr Neill Lochery (UCL Hebrew and Jewish Studies)
During World War II, Portugal was frantically trying to hold on to its self-proclaimed wartime neutrality, but was increasingly caught in the middle of the economic, and naval wars between the Allies and the Nazis. To complicate matters further, thousands of refugees, many of them Jewish, flooded into Lisbon seeking a passage to the United States or Palestine. This talk will present the little known, and yet vitally important history of the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, during World War II.
This lecture marks Holocaust Remembrance Day.
