Our own scholar Ian Vellins will speak to us on the life and death of Primo Levi.
Many of you will know of Ian’s career when, after many years as a leading lawyer, on his retirement he obtained post graduate degrees at the University of Manchester and Leeds. Ian has become an expert on the Holocaust, the kindertransport and Nazi-looted treasures.
Unfortunately, our scheduled speaker, Professor Tom Lawton, is unable to come to Leeds in September due to his academic commitments. But luckily, we have been able to re-schedule the professor’s talk for the 2nd December.
