Womens experience of the Holocaust remains a marginal subject. Even recent studies which claim to offer a comprehensive account tend to ignore or downplay the specific importance of womens testimony. As we prepare to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Brana Gurewitschs path-breaking Mothers, Sisters, Resisters, Zo Waxman will seek to explain why it is that women are still being silenced, and why motherhood, in particular, deserves serious attention.

Isobel Charman will guide us through the early history of the Zoological Gardens in the Regents Park, from their establishment by the ZSL in 1826 to the mid-19th century.
