The Green Park Hotel opened its doors in 1943 and for over forty years was a key hub of Anglo Jewish life. It provided kosher food, British seaside glamour and a place to introduce sons and daughters.┬áThis lively and warm-hearted film delves into the Anglo Jewish community, examining how it developed and flourished in the 20th century. With access to many of the leading lights of the community, this is a significant exploration of the role that ‘soft power’ spaces like the Green Park have played in creating a vibrant, integrated and successful life for English Jews.
