SUNDAY MARCH 5. 2.30 - 4.30. PROJECT TO RESEARCH THE ROLE OF LONDON JEWS IN THE FIRST WORLD WAR. FREE. The Liberal Jewish Synagogue, 28 St John’s Wood Road, London, NW8 7HA.
JEECS is going to be at the synagogue as part of this fascinating project.
The organisers are keen to meet people who had a Jewish family member living in London in 1914-1918, or who are just interested in learning more about finding and preserving stories of London Jewry in the First World War. There will be a short explanatory talk and the opportunity to chat to the team.
They would love to know if you have family stories, photographs, medals, letters or other items relating to the 1914-1918 period or if you would like to volunteer to help others with research and uploading information.
Their aim is to create a lasting archive of stories to honour and remember London’s Jewish community, and its contribution to the war effort, a century ago.
The synagogue is a 5-7 minute walk from bus stops for routes: 13, 82, 46, 113, 139, 187, 189 and 274, and about 15 minutes walk from St John's Wood tube. There is a free on-street parking nearby on Sundays.
