GUIDED WALK: GARNETHILL REFUGEE TRAIL
Sunday 10th April 2022 2-4pm
Join a guided walk of the Garnethill Refugee Trail, led by staff from the Scottish Jewish Heritage Centre and Scottish Jewish Archives Centre. The trail reveals places in Garnethill that are connected with Jewish refugees who came to Glasgow from Europe before, during and after the Second World War. Find out where children from the Kindertransport stayed, and learn about the house on Sauchiehall Street where refugees were able to meet and mix with local people.
The walk will take approximately an hour and a quarter, starting and finishing at Garnethill Synagogue. After the walk there will be an opportunity to view ‘Scotland a Sanctuary’ in the Succah. This exhibition is based on material in the collections of the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre, and shows how people from all backgrounds throughout Scotland helped those in peril. The Succah also houses searchable issues of the digitised Jewish Echo newspaper from 1928–1950, and a digital catalogue of key items from the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre’s refugee-era collections.
Cost: £5 (£4 for Friends of SJAC)
