Episode 63: Battle for the East End
April 1, 2012

In this episode, Malcah speaks with David Rosenberg, author of Battle for the East End and founder/guide for East End Walks. 1930s London saw the rise of a populist fascist movement led by Sir Oswald Mosley. The British Jewish communities of the time responded in various ways to the growing threat. London’s working class and immigrant East End was the focal point for both fascist and anti-fascist organizing. In his book, Battle for the East End, and in today’s interview, David Rosenberg details the rise of British fascism, Jewish responses and anti-fascist organizing. Featuring music by Oi Polloi and Socalled.
