Join Roger Moorhouse in conversation about the forgotten story of the Holocaust's most audacious rescue operation.

The inspirational story of the ordinary people who forged the documents that saved thousands of Jewish lives in the Second World War.

Between 1940 and 1943, a small group of Polish diplomats and Jewish activists in Switzerland engaged in a remarkable humanitarian operation. Under the leadership of the Polish Ambassador, Aleksander Lados, they undertook a systematic programme of forging identity documents for Latin American countries, which were then smuggled into German-occupied Europe to save the lives of thousands of Jews.

Author Roger Moorhouse will be in conversation with Collections Specialist, Ela Kaczmarska.

Roger Moorhouse is a historian and author specialising in modern German history. His other books include Killing Hitler: The Third Reich and the Plots Against the Fuhrer and The Devil's Alliance: Hitler's Pact with Stalin.
