<![CDATA[Cecil Roth Annual Lecture: Israel Zangwill and the Jewish East End]]> 11/05/2017 – Discover the East End of Zangwill's novels with Dr Nadia Valman]]> 11/05/2017 : Discover the East End of Zangwill's novels with Dr Nadia Valman



Discover the East End of Israel Zangwill's novels through his own words and objects from the museum's collection in this lecture from Dr Nadia Valman (Queen Mary, University of London).

The publication of Children of the Ghetto in 1892 propelled its little known young author, Israel Zangwill, into instant celebrity. Zangwill was celebrated as the ‘Jewish Dickens’, and his book was deemed ‘the best Jewish novel ever written’, credited with influencing British public opinion towards new sympathy for Jewish immigrants fleeing eastern Europe.

Zangwill’s witty portrait of the dilemmas of East End Jewish life was written at a time when the mass migration of Jews to Britain was being hotly debated, both in popular politics and within Jewish London. But Zangwill was also acutely aware that he was witnessing a community facing unprecedented change, whose future was unpredictable. This lecture will bring Zangwill’s novel to life using the Jewish Museum’s unique collection of objects from the Victorian East End of Children of the Ghetto.

Dr Nadia Valman is Reader in English Literature at Queen Mary, University of London. She has authored and edited nine books on Jews and literature and is currently researching the literary history of the East End of London. She leads guided literary walks and is the writer and producer of Zangwill’s Spitalfields, a free downloadable smartphone guide to the East End through the eyes of Israel Zangwill.

<![CDATA[Martin Norton Lecture - From Cosmopolis to Catastrophe: The Multicultural History of Aleppo]]> 15/06/2017 – Dr Philip Mansel discusses the cosmpolitan history of the Syrian capital]]> 15/06/2017 : Dr Philip Mansel discusses the cosmpolitan history of the Syrian capital



Join Dr Philip Mansel as he discusses the rise and fall of Syria's great merchant city.  

16th century Aleppo was a city with  a character and rhythm of its own, challenging categories and generalisations. Lying between the desert and the sea,  the mountains of Anatolia and the banks of the Euphrates, it was  Arab and Turkish; Kurdish and Armenian;  Christian, Muslim and Jewish.

An Arabic-speaking city with a Muslim majority, it was used as a military head-quarters by the Ottoman Empire, after its conquest by Selim I in 1516, in the empire’s wars with Iran. After 1516  Aleppo also became a centre of world trade in silk, spices and horses, as well as, after 1700,  a centre of French culture and Catholic missions. ‘If you do business with a dog, kindly call him sir’ was an Aleppo proverb which expressed the city’s commercial philosophy.

The city declined after 1918 when it was subordinated to Damascus and cut off from its former markets by the creation of new national states. The first anti-Jewish riots were in 1947. Until 2012  Aleppo was distinguished from other mixed cities in the region by its relative tolerance.

For 400 years, whatever their origin, its inhabitants lived together relatively peacefully. The reasons for this harmony, and for the current cataclysm, are the subject of this lecture.

Dr Philip Mansel is a historian of France and the Middle East. His books include lives of Louis XVIII and the Prince de Ligne, a study of nineteenth-century Paris and three books on mixed cities of the Middle East: Constantinople City of the World’s Desire; Levant: Splendour and Castastrophe on the Mediterranean on Smyrna, Alexandria and Beirut; and Aleppo: the Rise and Fall of Syria’s Great Merchant City. He is currently writing a life of Louis XIV. He is a founder of the Society for Court Studies (www.courtstudies.org) and the Levantine Heritage Foundation www.levantineheritage.com).

Doors - museum is open late from 5pm onwards
