You will find out about some of the places around Garnethill which are connected with Jewish refugees from Nazi Europe. Discover the fascinating hidden history of this area of the city, from hostels which housed refugee women and Kindertransport children to the refugee artists who enriched the cultural life of the city. You will learn about some of the people who came to Scotland and made their home here, and about the meeting places that were vital in supporting refugees to build new lives in Scotland.
This talk is illustrated with material from the collections of the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre and is based on the ‘Garnethill Refugee Trail’ walking tour.
