Conversations With Isaiah Berlin 9781905559329.jpg

One Week in History

An expert panel including Sir Malcolm Rifkind, Fania Oz-Salzberger, Henry Hardy and Trudy Gold examine the impact of four momentous events that all occurred in one week,  2 - 9  November.

In that week in 1917, two world-changing events occurred, the Russian Revolution and the Balfour Declaration. Isaiah Berlin witnessed the first and was committed to the ideas of the second. He died on 5 November 1997.

In addition, at the end of that week the November pogrom, Kristallnacht, was perpetrated. Looking through the eyes of one of the greatest liberals of the twentieth century, the panel discuss the historic relevance of these events and their impact on our world today.

The event took place at JW3 on 7 November 2017 at 7.30pm.

Eli Amir in conversation with Mishy Harman on Israel Story.

Eli Amir takes Mishy Harman back to the early 1950s, and straight into the closed world of socialist kibbutzim. An endless string of culture shocks followed, and the kibbutz old-timers made sure Eli never forgot he was only a yeled chutz, an ‘outside child.’ But still, Amir – who is now one of Israel’s most beloved novelists – had but one wish: to “become one of them.”
