Jewish Heroes and Villains

with Stephen Burstin

Walks & Trips

It’s a stroll along the centuries-old East End streets to discover the marvellous achievements of some wonderful people and the diabolical (sometimes hilarious) antics of several unsavoury characters.

       As we walk through parts of Whitechapel, Aldgate and Spitalfields you will be introduced to…..

  • The first Jew to win Britain’s highest military award, the Victorian Cross, for his lone actions against the enemy;  the female spy who sacrificed her life fighting the Nazis;  and England’s very own Oskar Schindler
  • The Kosher Nostra of London featuring the shocking behaviour of several notorious Jewish gangsters throughout the 20th century …and two top Jewish barristers who defended mobster bosses;  also the mischievous Jewish anarchists who laid siege upon their ultra religious brothers
  • The billionaire saviour of London’s impoverished Jews …but he had a dark side too!  The selfless doctor earning herself the title Angel of Cable Street;  the world-renowned hairdresser downing scissors to fight for Israel;  and the Yiddish actress who insisted the show must go on ..despite the German bombs falling on London
  • The miracle-performing Rabbi who was accused of sorcery in Germany and escaped execution by finding refuge in London’s East End …and there are lots more Jewish goodies and baddies to meet on this enthralling tour
