Our new event just added tells the remarkable story of a Jewish survivor hiding in plain sight at the heart of the Third Reich

A When Time Stopped event with Ariana Neumann just announced, extra tickets released for two sell-outs, save with our double bill offers – plus information about two free, drop-in workshops
ARIANA NEUMANN: WHEN TIME STOPPED 1 March, 3.30pm
As a child in Venezuela, Neumann was fascinated by the enigma of her father Hans. He seemed to be the epitome of strength but he also wakes at night screaming in a language she doesn’t understand, then she stumbles across an old ID where he has a different name. In this New York Times bestseller she meticulously uncovers his extraordinary story, spanning continents and 90 years, including his escape from Nazi-occupied Prague and his bravery in living out the war undercover in Berlin, spying for the allies. As Michael Palin says: “Ariana’s story may strike a chord, and rightly so. The slow and pitiless brutality that took hold of much of Europe in the 1930s is a story that can never be told too often. It’s not always a grim story. Alongside anger and despair there is love and hope. When Time Stopped is more than just history. It’s a warning.”
