Audio from Chalke Valley History Festival 2018 – here is Simon Schama in conversation with Tom Clark.
In our own time of anxious arrivals and enforced departures, the Jews’ search for a home is more startlingly resonant than ever. Simon Schama presents a magnificent cultural history that spans centuries and continents, from the Jews’ expulsion from Spain in 1492 to the brink of the twentieth century, in an epic tale that feels not only like the story of the Jews, but of all humanity.
