Talk: Antisemitism in Britain - then and now
Historian David Rosenberg, known for his walks uncovering London’s radical history, including the history of anti-fascism and anti-racism in East London, will be looking at current controversies around ant-semitism and setting it in the context of 20th century history.
David was born in London in 1958. His grandparents came to the East End as Jewish immigrants from the Tsarist Russian Empire in the 1900s. At first they lived just off Cable Street, then later on Princelet Street and Hanbury Street just off Brick Lane.
David divides his working time between adult education teaching, training teachers, working on educational and cultural projects, writing, giving talks and guiding people on radical history walks.
As a teacher and educationalist he has participated in projects in Uganda, South Africa and India. His writing on history and current affairs has featured on several Channel 4 websites and in many print publications including the Guardian, New Statesman, Red Pepper, Morning Star and Time Out. He is the author of Battle for the East End: Jewish responses to fascism in the 1930s (Five Leaves Publications, 2011) and Rebel Footprints: a guide to uncovering London’s radical history (Pluto Press, 2015, new edition 2019). Copies of the latter will be available to purchase on the night.
