The End of the Night

Original Theatre Online, Monday 4 July at 7:30 pm

In the final days of the Second World War, a secret meeting takes place between a member of the World Jewish Congress and one of the most powerful Nazis in Germany, without Hitler’s knowledge. Dr Felix Kersten, Himmler’s trusted personal physiotherapist, uses his unique position of influence to facilitate a meeting between the architect of The Holocaust and Swedish Jew, Norbert Masur. A meeting that could turn Himmler’s thoughts away from the downfall of the Third Reich and towards a course of action that could save thousands of lives. Get tickets here.

Ukraine in Focus: In Conversation with Mark Neville

Neville began photographing the people and places of Ukraine in 2015 and moved to Kyiv in 2020. His book Stop Tanks with Books offers a glimpse of life in Ukraine over the past six years, during the simmering conflict sparked by Russia’s invasion of eastern and southern parts of the country in 2014. While the strain of living with constant threat is more immediately evident in some photographs than others, the series portrays the humanity and resilience of a population now under direct attack.
