Tom Schrecker Dinner 2023

On Thursday, 9 March 2023, The College was delighted to hold the Tom Schrecker Dinner, attended by current students and Fellows of the College.

These annual dinners are a gift from Mr Thomas Schrecker (1952, History), Foundation Fellow, who was a history undergraduate at Univ from 1952 to 1955. He was born in 1932 in Prague, Czechoslovakia to Jewish parentage. After the Nazi occupation in March 1939, thanks to Sir Nicholas Winton’s rescue mission, Tom was able to leave the country on a train to England.

Univ is deeply grateful to Tom and his family for this generous benefaction and the support he has shown for the Schrecker-Barbour Tutorial Fellowship in Slavonic and East European Studies. He was elected as a Foundation Fellow in 2007, an honour which is awarded to those individuals who have made exceptional benefactions to the College and therefore have been essential in ensuring Univ’s community can continue to thrive.

Below you will find the event report by Mary Orsak (2022, MPhil Slavonic Studies) and a selection of photos from this year’s event.
