The Archives Centre continues to grow its holdings of documents, photographs and memorabilia on the Holocaust era, documenting the experiences of those who came here on the Kindertransport, as refugees from Central Europe during the 1930s or as survivors after the war. There is a fascinating story to tell of how many hundreds made a new life in Scotland and of the contribution they made to Scottish society, as doctors, teachers, nurses, artists, business people and in other fields.
With the support of the Scottish Government, we have carried out a study into the feasibility of a Scottish Holocaust Era Study Centre, as an adjunct of the Archives Centre in Garnethill Synagogue. We want to improve access to these collections for researchers in schools and universities and elsewhere.
