Thursday 16th May 2024, Englefield House

Full Price £15 / Tea and Cake £8 (including booking fees)

  • Hitler, Stalin, Mum & Dad. A family memoir of miraculous survival. Daniel Finkelstein.

Award-winning journalist, associate editor and weekly political columnist for The Times newspaper, Baron Daniel Finkelstein OBE is a prolific force in print and politics.

This afternoon he will be joined by the distinguished novelist and political commentator Robert Harris, to talk about his recent book, Hitler, Stalin, Mum and Dad.

Hitler, Stalin, Mum and Dad
is a deeply moving, personal and at times horrifying memoir about Finkelstein’s parents’ experiences at the hands of two genocidal dictators of the twentieth century.

It is a story of persecution and survival; and the consequences of totalitarianism told with the almost unimaginable bravery of two ordinary families shining through.

Duration: 1hr 30mins (approx) - followed by optional tea and cake
