Ging Wong Seminar
Delivering this term’s lecture today as part of the Ging Wong Seminar Series at Corpus Christi College, Oxford University.
The purpose of this lecture series is to give graduate students an insight into the world of work – which they are soon to enter. I was asked to speak about my time at the college, what the experience had taught me, my career after leaving Oxford, any advice I might be able to offer about pursuing jobs in journalism and what had prompted me to write a book.

It was a full house today for the event entitled “The Destruction of the Jewish German Fashion Industry” presented by me alongside journalist and author Uwe Westphal – who had been flown in from Berlin.

The talk was introduced by Annette Klein, German Consul General for Florida, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Based in Miami she had come especially in order to speak to the large audience of 376 people in the tightly packed hall.
Fundraising Event with Robert Siegel
Today I took part in a fundraising event for the Brandeis National Committee Scholarship Fund and Beth El Youth held at Beth El Hebrew Congregation in Alexandria, Virginia.
I joined two other authors – former Congressman Steve Israel and Chicago trial attorney Ronald H. Balson.
Each author spoke for half an hour about their books and then answered questions from both the audience as well as the delightful moderator Robert Siegel.
