This temporary Reading Room exhibition displays some of the Library's collections of Tarnschriften, rare anti-Nazi resistance pamphlets, that were distributed secretly throughout the Third Reich in the 1930s and 1940s.
This virtual revision session, aimed at GCSE and A-Level students, will utilise sources from the Library’s unique archive to examine the Nazi’s creation of a ‘Racial State’.

In this event, we will introduce the Sephardi Voices UK archive, explore testimonies of those who lived through the 1941 pogrom, the Farhud, and discuss the long-term effects on Baghdad's Jewish population.
