Christian and Jewish Women in Britain, 1880-1940 Living with Difference
This book offers an entirely new contribution to the history of multiculturalism in Britain, 1880-1940. It shows how friendship and co-operation between Christian and Jewish women changed lives and, as the Second World War approached, actually saved them. The networks and relationships explored include: the thousand-plus women from Manchester who combined to send a letter of sympathy to Madame Dreyfus at the height of the Dreyfus Affair; the religious leagues for women’s suffrage who initiated the first interfaith campaigning movement in British history; and the collaborations, often problematic, on refugee relief in the 1930s. A great variety of sources are thoughtfully interrogated, and concluding remarks address some of the social concerns of the present century.
