Local historian Martin Peagam will explore how Teesside responded to the Jewish refugee crisis of the 1930s.
Millions of Jews suffered discrimination and ultimately extermination under the Nazi regime.
A lucky few – predominately children – escaped and built new lives in other countries, some found a home on Teesside.
