In this partnership, The Jewish Museum London will assume care and responsibility for the Jewish Military Museum’s entire collection of over 4,000 objects and its learning programme.
This Jewish Military Museum's collection focuses on the stories of individual Jewish men and women who have served in the British Armed Forces for over three centuries.
From spring 2015, objects from the Jewish Military Museum’s collection will be integrated into the Jewish Museum’s permanent galleries.
The collection includes personal letters, diaries and photographs, souvenirs of soldiers at war, medals, uniforms and other military artefacts.
Highlights include original handwritten posters by the first Jewish chaplain on the Front Line, Reverend Michael Adler; the diary of Florence Greenberg (née Oppenheimer), a World War I nurse who served on a hospital ship at Gallipoli and later became a best-selling Jewish cookery writer; the Victoria Cross of Tommy Gould, who saved the lives of those aboard his submarine, HMS Thrasher, at immense personal risk; and the Association of Jewish Ex-Servicemen and Women (AJEX) Memorial Window, designed by Abram Games, and already on display in the Jewish Museum.
The First World War: Remember Me is an education workshop for schools, which helps students to understand that by investigating people’s lives it can help us to understand what happened in the past.
The programme can be tailored to history, english, religious studies or local history classes.
