East End in focus: Synagogue Stories: an oral history project
At this unique event, combining discussion, readings, sound excerpts and film, writer and local historian Rachel Lichtenstein (Rodinsky’s Room, On Brick Lane) reveals all about her latest oral history project with Sandys Row Synagogue in Spitalfields, the oldest Ashkenazi community in London. Drawing on interviews with elderly Jewish members of the synagogue, Rachel will discuss her work with photographer Phil Maxwell whose film created around the project, with Hazuan Hashim, will conclude the evening.
