Rachel Lichtenstein came to Jewish Book Week to uncover the world of Hatton Garden, “one of the most secret streets in England”. Intimately connected to the area both personally, through her family’s jewellery business, and as an artist-archivist of London streets, Lichtenstein explored the extraordinary and vanishing history of this mysterious quarter, a hub of ancient burial sites, diamond workshops, underground vaults, subterranean rivers, monastic dynasties and forgotten palaces.
