We Were There Too – British Jews in the First World War Exhibition

The millions of men and women who became part of the UK military forces in 1914-18 came from many and all backgrounds, including thousands of British Jewish participants. Join us to find out more about these different individuals, how their lives contributed to the British war effort and how families and communities were affected by conflict.

Also find out about the work of AJEX, the Jewish Military Association UK, and how they are making sure the Jewish contribution to the British forces is never forgotten.
