The organisers of this event are seeking information from Jews who have World War One connections. JW3, the Jewish community and cultural centre (which has absorbed the old London Jewish Cultural Centre) has been awarded a substantial lottery grant to establish a website dedicated to the role London Jews played in the First World War.
The historian Paula Kitching is the project manager and she has invited JEECS to contribute, especially as regards the East End. The project will cover all aspects of the war – soldiers who served, women, deserters, etc etc. Anyone with even a peripheral link to London can be included, and Clive Bettington, JEECS chairman, is preparing items on Isaac Rosenberg and David Bomberg.
