At a time when competing narratives of British responses vie for prominence in public discourse, in particular around notions of immigration and 'British Values,' this session uses a rich wealth of historical sources from five leading archives to interrogate such narratives. Evidence from The National Archives, Mass Observation, the Churchill Archives, the Wiener Library and the Imperial War Museum will be used to and encourage a rethinking of the sorts of stories we like to tell ourselves about who we are as a nation in relation to the Holocaust, and how we understand this relationship and ourselves now.

This event is part of the UCL Festival of Culture, a packed, five-day programme of free talks, panel discussions, screenings, performances, and tours. Join us to discover, discuss and be inspired by the exceptional breadth and quality of the arts, humanities and social sciences at UCL.
