The Jewish Military Museum is now at the Jewish Museum London. Over 5,000 objects from the Jewish Military Museum including the personal diaries, letters, medals, uniforms and souvenirs of Jewish soldiers fighting for Britain have arrived at the Jewish Museum London.
The partnership between the Jewish Museum London and the Jewish Military Museum has seen the Jewish Museum London assume care and responsibility for the Jewish Military Museum’s entire collection, research archive and its learning programme.
This collection, previously housed at the Jewish Military Museum in Hendon, focuses on the stories of individual Jewish men and women who have served in the British Armed Forces for over three centuries.
Curators Roz Currie and Sarah Fairhurst have integrated over 50 objects from the Jewish Military Museum’s collection into the Jewish Museum’s permanent galleries enhancing the displays with exciting new stories and bold images.
Key objects on display include:
We Were There Too is a unique cross community project created to capture, record and preserve the impact, experience and contribution of London’s Jewish communities during the First World War era.

The programme can be tailored to history, english, religious studies or local history classes.
