Gathering The Voices
GtVA has been gathering the oral testimonies of men and women who sought refuge in Scotland to escape the racism of Nazi-dominated Europe in the 1930s and 1940s.
Most, but not all, were Jewish and many made remarkable journeys to get to safety in Scotland.
This project has gathered and made available online oral testimony from men and women who sought sanctuary in Scotland to escape the racism of Nazi-dominated Europe. Some came on the Kindertransport, others survived concentration camps. The project also developed educational resources for schools including a mobile exhibition.
