Hear Norman Lebrecht on the glory & tragedy of Jewish achievement & how it transformed our world


In the course of 100 years, a handful of men and women changed our world in terms of scientific breakthroughs in medicine and technology, the arts and politics. Many remain household names (Marx, Freud, Kafka et al) , others are largely overlooked by history and yet, when the world’s populationĀ  of their faith was just 0.25% they transformed the way we live. What did they have in common? All were of Jewish origin.

Bestselling author, broadcaster and arts commentator Norman Lebrecht will be talking about his latest book, Grief & Anxiety: How Jews Changed The World, heralded as ‘a dazzling masterpiece’ here on 21 Nov at 7.30.
