Anti‐semitism and the Jewish community of Newcastle‐upon‐Tyne

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


After briefly outlining the historical development of the Jewish community in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, this article examines the extent to which anti-Semitism was a major concern in the life of modern North-East Jewry. The focus of this discussion is on the 1930s and 1940s, a period when anti-Semitism assumed greater significance. What this artcle revals is that on Tyneside, even though the fear of anti-Semitism gave rise to active responses from within the local Jewish community, anti-Semitism remained small scale. The experience of Newcastle's Jewish community should caution us against overstating the prevalence of anti-Semitism in British society.
