DUTCH COURAGE

For April’s issue of Jewish Renaissance we are in the Netherlands, taking the temperature on a country emerging from a divisive election campaign. We’ll also be taking a stroll around Amsterdam’s rich and distinctive Jewish history and culture, and looking at a remarkable letter-writing project that puts elderly Dutch Holocaust survivors in touch with young Muslims. Elsewhere, Lord Dubs and MP Mike Freer debate the issue of refugee children; we mark the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War with an exploration of the photographs, film and music created at the time, and we speak to those behind a new show about the artist Charlotte Salomon. There’s also Michael Rosen on Zola, Robin Lustig on Bibi and Donald Trump – as well as a review of Howard Jacobson’s latest satire on the new US President. Plus exciting news about the Jewish Museum London’s big Sephardi festival this summer, which promises belly dancing, henna painting and more! Not to mention three months’ worth of Jewish cultural events taking place across the UK and beyond.
