Bristol Radical History join us for an astounding a talk by author Morris Beckman about the hidden history of how British Jewish ex-servicemen fought back against those trying to reconstitute fascist groups after WWII.

The '43 Group' took it's name from the number of people at the founding meeting, one of whom was Morris Beckman (who had served on a Flower class corvette during the war). The movement grew to include many hundreds of men and women, including a 17-year-old Vidal Sassoon (who would later found the hair-dressing empire)and successfully fought a vicious underground war in the back streets of Britain to stop the rebirth of fascism.

Come and hear group member and author of 'The 43 Group' on this
