Student Visit

Manchester Jewish Museum and Heritage trail. On 14 March Dr Jean-Marc Dreyfus organized two visits for the students from his second year course, ‘A history apart: Jews in Europe 19th-20th centuries’. They visited the Manchester Jewish Museum, learning about the history of the museum and the community that worshipped there, and took part in the Heritage Trail around the old Jewish quarter of Cheetham Hill, a walking tour led by local historian Merton Paul in which they visited sites of great importance to the people of the community, often refugees from Eastern Europe, and heard anecdotes about their lives.
