Simon Schama: The Story of the Jews, Part 2 — Belonging


Simon Schama’s great BBC/PBS project continues with the story of the Jewish people from 1492 through the end of the 19th century.

The Jewish story is woven into the fabric of humanity. Their search for a home where a distinctive religion and culture could be nourished without being marginalized suddenly takes on startling resonance in our own epoch of homelessness, wanderings, persecutions and anxious arrivals. Join him to hear firsthand about this epic story — and gain new insights into a crucial period of history.

Moderated by 92Y Talks Chairman Thomas Kaplan.
