180th Anniversary Free Members’ Webinar: Psychiatry, psychiatrists and Jewish identity in the UK, past and present.

Event Information

This webinar will give psychiatrists an insight into:

  • The origins of today’s UK Jewish community, including the major immigration c.1880-1914; refugees from the Nazis; and more recently
  • Jewish involvement in psychiatry, particularly the work of refugees who came to the UK in the 1930s
  • Identity and diversity in the UK Jewish community

We will not be focusing on Jewish religious practice, information about which is more readily available. 

  • Claire Hilton (Historian in residence, RCPsych) -  Jewish identity and Prescot St E1 – From the 1911 Census to the Royal College of Psychiatrists
  • David Luck (Archivist, Bethlem Museum of the Mind) - Three Jewish refugees from Nazi Europe: their identities and their contributions at the Maudsley Hospital and to UK psychiatry
  • Igor Zinkov (Rabbi, Liberal Jewish Synagogue, London) - Jewish identities in the UK today

Questions can either be submitted using the Q&A function during the webinar, or you can email them in advance to kesia.wills@rcpsych.ac.uk.

You can find out more about past and upcoming webinars and catch up on demand with any you have missed on our website.
