At: Ruth Winston Centre,
190 Green Lanes, Palmers Green, N13 5UE
Talk & Discussion:
“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 antisemitism and setting it in the context of 20th century history.
David Rosenberg 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.)
Visitors welcome to come and join in the discussion.

TUESDAY NOVEMBER 12th: Theatre visit to ‘Incognito’ little theatre in Friern Barnet:
“FOX ON THE FAIRWAY” by Ken Ludwig.
A tribute from Ken Ludwig to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, A Fox On the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp, which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers' classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with...golf.
If you’d like to join us on this date ask the secretary to book for you (£10).
On other dates from 10 –16 November you can book yourself (£11).
