Leave to Land: The Kitchener Camp Rescue, 1939
1 September 2019Free – £20
Jewish Museum London, 129-131 Albert Street, London
In 2019, to commemorate 80 years since the rescue of our fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other relatives, we have created an exhibition about the remarkable Kitchener camp rescue.
The exhibition draws on some of the hundreds of materials kindly shared by descendant families with the Kitchener camp project.
These images and this mobile exhibition are to be donated to London’s Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust, so the materials can be kept safe for families and historians.
The ten exhibition banners will be set up in the auditorium of the London Jewish Museum on 1 September 2019.
The Kitchener exhibition will be free of charge and open to the public from 10am to 12.00pm.
Tickets are not available for this free morning exhibition – just turn up on the day!
Kitchener exhibition – afternoon event – Tickets only!
Just before lunch, the exhibition will close to the public and we will have a light buffet lunch set up.
People with pre-booked tickets may then re-enter the auditorium space for lunch. We are arranging some talks and three workshops. There should be time for you to attend two of the three workshops, should you wish to do so.
The museum closes at 5pm promptly, so we will need to say our goodbyes at 4.30pm.
Tickets are £20 for adults and £10 for students (with ID) / children.
An observation: children might not find the afternoon event especially interesting – it is aimed at an adult audience.
