Refugees, migrants, memories and identities

Refugees, migrants, memories and identities

What impact did the Second World War have on the identity of refugees and migrants to Britain, and did where they came from make their experiences different?

Join us at 6pm GMT for this free 1hr online talk about the experiences of refugees and migrants in Britain during the Second World War and in its immediate aftermath.

How are their stories remembered and retold? What impact did the war have on their sense of identity? Louise Ryan and Wendy Webster focus on Jewish German-speaking refugees who worked in British cinema and broadcasting or served in the British army, and on Irish and Polish migrants who made dangerous journeys to Britain.
