Shelter from the Storm

Share on social media:

Oxford gave sanctuary to many who fled Nazi persecution, and the refugees in turn made a colossal contribution to the University’s intellectual life, as a forthcoming book reveals.   Victoria Bentata, one of the Oxford Jewish Heritage Committee members, and a well known local author has had this article published in Oxford Today, a Oxford University publication.      The exhibition, Persecution and Survival open from  Jan – March 2012, was reported on this website, and the OJHCommittee was involved in the official opening.

Our thanks to the Author and Editor of Oxford Today for permission to refer to it here
