50 Objects: 'Military Service'

Jewish people played a significant role in the world wars, both on the battlefield and the home front. Our collections include uniforms, letters, medals and photographs. Our World War II collections demonstrate how the Jewish population was particularly invested in the fight against Nazism, and include stories of the many refugees from Nazism who joined the British Army.
