First World War: Remember Me

Discover the personal stories of four British-born Jewish men and women who signed up to serve in the First World War. Through object and document handling students will gain a deeper insight into Jewish identity on the front line.

Explore the implications of being part of a minority community whilst serving on the Front and find out more about the lives of those who signed up.

Experience the work of a museum curator as students select objects for a mini exhibition on remembrance. Students will focus on one individual for their display. Students will be encouraged to reflect on remembrance in a Jewish, national and local context.
