This interactive session will encourage pupils to consider what life would have been like for immigrants to London at the end of the Victorian period. They will step back in time in our gallery and meet the Jablonsky family, who migrated from Poland to London’s East End in the late 19th century. They can handle objects relating to the home and typical East End trades and consider how they differ from those used today. Pupils will be encouraged to relate the displays to their own family backgrounds and will gain a greater understanding of the challenges facing immigrants today.
