We have created a mobile exhibition, which is available to hire to schools and other organisations. The exhibition contains a wealth of fascinating images and visual material that helps to brings to life the experiences of the people who came to Scotland to escape the Holocaust.

The exhibition is an excellent resource to support education about the Holocaust, The Second World War and the human experience of refugees.
