PROJECT INFORMATION

Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage CIC, in partnership with the Centre for German-Jewish Studies,
Jewish Care and the Jewish Historical Society of England is facilitating this project
Shalom Sussex – The Jewish Community in WWI.

The project focuses on the contribution Jewish people in Sussex made during the First World War – both on the home-front and abroad on the battlefield.

To mark the end of the Centenary of the First World War, between March 2019-March 2020,  this  project is enabling people in Sussex to come together to preserve the memories and heritage of the Jewish people who lived locally during and post the First World War to collect these hidden histories.
