Newcastle University’s School of Arts and Culture and School of Modern Languages provides a small selection of Jewish studies modules at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Themes and topics explored include, but are not limited to, Jewish history and culture in Russia and Eastern Europe throughout the twentieth century, as well as Jewish and non-Jewish Relations in Europe throughout the ages. In the School of Modern Languages, undergraduate modules on Nazi occupation and resistance in France, as well as on German Representations of the Holocaust, are taught. Staff also supervise postgraduates on Holocaust-related topics. There is a particular focus on pre-modern Jewish history, as facilitated through programmes in Ancient History and History.You can find more about the School of Arts and Culture at Newcastle University here and the School of Modern languages here.
Staff at Newcastle University have also developed a website on ‘Children under the Nazis‘, which is mainly aimed at secondary schools and provides free online access to an exhibition, background material, and an educational programme for teachers and students. Schools and other educational institutions can borrow a physical copy of the pull-up poster exhibition for free.
