Oral history recordings from the RCP archives are being taken to news audiences in the History Zone at the RCP Innovation in Medicine 2018 Conference on 25 and 26 June.
Many of those interviewed for the RCP oral history project have a Jewish heritage. The families of some came to the UK in the Jewish diaspora of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Others arrived throughout the 1930s, moving first to countries neighbouring Germany and then to the UK as Hitler’s expansionist policies became apparent. This post looks at three of their stories.
The RCP archives contain oral history recordings of physicians of the past and a new project is recording the memories of current members and fellows. They document personal tales as well as seminal moments in medical – and world – history.
