Hubert Butler: The Irish Essayist Who Outwitted the SS

Hubert Butler (1900-1991) was both a brilliant writer and a fearless activist. His interest in Central and Eastern Europe gave him an early awareness of growing anti-Semitism in that region, inspiring his work on behalf of Jewish refugees and, after World War II, his investigations into ethnic cleansing in the Balkans. Professor Roy Foster will chair a discussion of Butler’s work with his publisher Antony Farrell and biographer Robert Tobin at Europe House, 32 Smith Square, London SW1P on Tuesday 14th November at 6.30 for 6.45 pm. Admission is free, but please email comm-lon-rsvp@ec.europa.eu to say that you’d like to come
