Walter Jaye, who Marie-Pierre Ulloa knew well and interviewed on a number of occasions, passed away on 9 November 2020, just a few weeks ago. He was 95 years old. Marie-Pierre has recorded a prelude to her paper, which relates to and contextualises his life in much greater depth, (Please scroll down for the video). She has also generously shared links to the original interview recordings of Walter Jaye, including an abstract How a Jewish Refugee Became a Freedom Fighter in WWII and the three-part Lives of Walter Jaye: Part I; Part II; Part III. These are not necessary to view to attend the seminar.
