Professor Kay Schiller: The Fastest Jew in Germany: Alex Nathan 1906-1971
Monday December 2nd 2019
I’m sorry to say that this seminar is now cancelled due to the ongoing strike action by UCU. Fans of Prof Schiller will be glad to know however that he will feature in the next Sport in Historian podcast, which will be available to download via this website, Castbox, iTunes, or Spotify from 8th December. We are seeking to reschedule the seminar itself for early 2020.

This is only the one of a number of series of stimulating talks to be held at the IHR across a range of disciplines. For up to date details of seminars forthcoming in 2019 go to the IHR’s website. The Sport & Leisure talks take place in the John S Cohen Room on the second floor – doors open from 17:45 and the seminar will start promptly at 18.00. The seminars are open to academics and the general public; I hope to see you there.
