The Jewish Military Museum is working in partnership with the Jewish Museum to explore our collection and reach new audiences. Both museums have a shared goal to further understanding and knowledge about Jewish life, history and heritage. This project will ultimately see the two museums come together to tell these stories.
We have received funding from the Arts Council England to allow us to work more closely with the fascinating objects in our collection. A research assistant and archivist, Sarah Fairhurst and learning officer, Tom Furber, have been appointed to develop new interpretation and programmes around key objects including the Association of Jewish Ex-Servicemen and Women Memorial Window designed by Abram Games.
As part of this project our World War I exhibition will showcase the Jewish Military Museum collection to tell the multi-faceted story of Jewish involvement in the Great War.
Sarah is documenting her process of discovery through the Jewish Military Museum stores on this blog.
