Event description

Description

Are you interested in the history of Belgian refugees in the UK during the First World War? Have you been involved in researching them in your local area? Maybe you have family stories or objects that you'd like to share?

Come along to the third of our UK workshops, where you will have the opportunity to meet other people in your area who are interested in this history.

Hear interesting talks, share sources and artefacts, enjoy the opportunity to network over lunch, and meet the project team who will tell you all about how you can use the database to input your findings.

We are working with the Imperial War Museum on an exhibition on Belgian refugees opening in 2020, and are looking for the following:

1. Letters and diaries that tell the story as it was happening, including transcriptions/translations

2. Objects that people took with them (especially if there was a story as to why they brought what they did).

3. Objects/supplies/resources that people were given on arrival.

4. Paperwork, forms, passes

5. Later written memoirs

6. Photographs

If you have something that fits the bill and would be happy to bring it along we would be delighted to see it.

We look forward to seeing you in May!
