‘The Kindertransportees in Britain: what did they do with their German?’
Professor Eva Maria Thune of the University of Bologna will be giving a talk chaired by Mike Levy. Dr Thune: says: “In 2017 I came to the UK and gathered interviews with Kindertransportees and other former German-speaking refugees of a similar age to find out whether they maintained the German language during their lifetime. This led naturally into discussing their learning of English, and their evolving attitudes to the two languages and cultures. At the synagogue, entrance free.
