Elizabeth Polack, Jewish Emancipation, and the Archive of Nineteenth-Century Melodrama

Hosted By: Jewish Studies at Fordham University

Elizabeth Polack is the earliest known Jewish woman playwright in Britain. We know very little about her life, but her entertaining melodramas in the late 1830s made lasting impact, so that people were still talking about the spectacular murder mystery The Echo of Westminster Bridge well into the twentieth century. They address pressing issues such as the struggle for the emancipation of the Jews and of women at a time when both were subjected to overwhelming legal and cultural disabilities. Join the Center for Jewish Studies at Fordham University to learn more about her work and legacy.
