Piecing Together Lost History: Jews in the South African War – 3rd August

PIECING TOGETHER LOST HISTORY:

JEWS IN THE SOUTH AFRICAN WAR

Join Willesden Jewish Cemetery and the Jewish Historical Society of England in remembering the Jewish fatalities of the 1899-1902 South African War. Originally displayed on the Great Portland Street side of the original Central Synagogue building, 114 Jews are remembered on two memorial boards now housed at Willesden Jewish Cemetery. But who were they?

Join Molly Maslen, volunteer researcher with the House of Life and History MA graduate, to lift the veil on this memorial following her extensive research.
