About the event

24th of March 1939 was a poignant day for twelve-year-old Gerald Wiener. He was on a train pulling out of Berlin and he was on his way to the UK to escape persecution in Nazi Germany. He was one of the thousands of unaccompanied children saved by the Kindertransport. Looked after by two sisters in Oxford, his abilities as a scholar became apparent, and from an early age, he was set on the road to academic achievement.

In Goodbye Berlin, Margaret M. Dunlop traces the life of her husband, Gerald Wiener, and explores how one man’s life and achievements mirror the great events of the second half of the twentieth century and the opening years of the new millennium.

The evening will feature words from author Margaret M. Dunlop, and Gerald Wiener will reflect upon his experiences as a refugee.
