searching-for-lord-haw-haw-the-political-lives-of-william-joyce-by-colin-holmesSearching for Lord Haw-Haw is the story of the political lives of William Joyce. He became notorious as a fascist, an anti-Semite and a Second World War traitor when, assuming the persona of Lord Haw-Haw, he acted as a radio propagandist for the Nazis.

This is the first attempt to place Joyce at the centre of the turbulent events through which he lived. Colin Holmes explores Joyce’s narcissisistic personality and exposes its dangerous, destructive consequences.

“What a saga my life would make!” Joyce wrote from prison just before his execution. Few would disagree with him.

Colin Holmes is an Emeritus Professor at Sheffield University.

Admission for this event is £3 and refreshments will be available.
