The Leaves of Southwell Project Presents:
a talk by Dr Helen Bates
26 January 2021

On the eve of Holocaust Memorial Day 2021, we reflect on the life of Nikolaus Pevsner, author of The Leaves of Southwell, the context of his Jewish heritage and the family he left behind in Nazi Germany.

We will also consider the context of his interaction with the Leaves of Southwell during these times.
