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.

Jewish people have been in Sussex since the 1700s, and the contribution in WWI made by Jews to the area has been significant.

Shalom!

Shalom Sussex – New opportunities for research and activities

Shalom Sussex- The Jewish Community in WWI

This project enables 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.  Jewish people have been in Sussex since the 1700s, and the contribution in WWI made by Jews to the area has been significant.

Our project researchers have been hard at work collecting photographs, newspaper clippings, and photos, as well as family tales passed down to help them build a clear picture of what life was like.

The main focus of our project will be the creation of a community history website to collect new archive material, as well as to share this heritage publicly. In keeping with Jewish tradition, this site will enable visitors to respect ancestors so that their passing can be commemorated.

About the project

  

Shalom Sussex project website

 

Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage has set up a new project website to support the Shalom Sussex – The Jewish Community in WWI to profile the contribution Jewish people in Sussex made during the First World War – both on the home-front and abroad on the battlefield.

Jewish people make up a small part of the Sussex demographic, and with partners and participants we have realised how little information is available about this topic. We seek to research, explore and share this hidden history.
