Event Details

Anne Sebba, historian and savvy story-teller, will present three lectures for ADFAS Shoalhaven on Thursday 3rd May and Friday 4th May.

On Friday morning Anne will present two lectures. The first will be Les Parisiennes, the story of women’s lives in Paris during the dark years of Nazi occupation. Anne will tell of the women who were sent to camps, the housewives, the actors, the singers and the night club dancers. We’ll learn how many couturiers and jewellers flourished at this time.

Then, The Story of the Cook Sisters, two eccentric, opera loving women who undertook dangerous undercover missions in the 1930’s, rescuing Jewish musicians and others from the Nazis. The lecture will also explore the world of opera in the 1920’s and 1930’s.

The Thursday evening lecture by Anne Dollar Princesses, explores the story of hundreds of American heiresses, who, between 1870 and 1914, flooded the shores of continental Europe, trading fortunes for titles.
