HULL HISTORY CENTRE, Worship Street, Yorkshire, Hull, HU2 8BG

FREE

Family Friendly

An exhibition documenting the contribution and sacrifice of the Hull Jewish Community during the First World War. Over a hundred members of the Hull Jewish community served in the British army during the First World War and this exhibition tells the stories of their lives and service.

The exhibition builds from the We Were There Too digital archive and interactive website, which will become a permanent record of the lives of Jewish men, women and families, 1914-1919. The site includes details of their military and Home Front activities, ensuring that their stories are not lost for future generations.
