Weekly Round Up, July 17

This week we were excited to see the first fruits of our partnership with the Board of Deputies, whose Hidden Treasures project will launch this week. This initiative celebrates and showcases the very best items from archives across the UK that tell the story of Jews and their experiences in Britain. We will have items from the archive featured in this project, and we are very proud that interviewee Kurt Marx's Kindertransport travel documents is featured on the Hidden Treasures site homepage, which will launch this week. Hidden Treasures will have an online Zoom launch event this coming Sunday, July 16, from 6-7.15pm, hosted by the Board of Deputies with a fascinating lineup. Please see more information here:


On social media we featured the UK school experiences of three interviewees who attended different wartime schools catering to refugees, Bunce Court, Stoatley Rough and Schindler's, aka Regent's Park schools. Our interviewees have fond memories of these often-eccentric-sounding establishments, and we enjoyed reading their school testimonies:
