14 December 2019

1.30pm - ‘Dear Pastor, I will be arriving at Liverpool Street Station on 11th January…’: The Help Given to Women by Women in the 1930s – Anette Jäger, historian

For several years Anette has been researching the stories of Christian refugees of Jewish descent. This second talk on her research is a compelling follow up to her first talk and focuses on the role of women in bringing refugees to London in the 1930s. A main source for her talk is information in letters found in the archives of St George’s German Lutheran Church in Alie Street in the East End of London.

3.30pm - Queen Victoria Seaman’s Rest, East India Dock Road and the German’s Seaman’s Mission in Tilbury Docks -- Revd Cameron Kirkwood and Revd Mark Moeller, Pastors

This talk about another aspect of life in London’s East End was given at St George’s German Lutheran Church last November and I am delighted to have them give the talk for us.

5.00-8.00pm - Christmas Social
