Documenting & commemorating the contribution London Jews made during the First World War

We Were There Too is a unique cross community project created to capture, record and preserve the impact, experience and contribution of Londonís Jewish communities during the First World War era.

At the centre of the project is this digital archive and interactive website, which will become a permanent record of the lives of Jewish men, women and families, 1914-1919, with details of their military and Home Front activities, ensuring that their stories are not lost for future generations.

Volunteers from Jewish and non-Jewish schools, and informal education groups, will work with, and be trained alongside adult volunteers to develop the digital project and collect the materials that will be housed on the site. The findings will be interpreted imaginatively to attract, inform and educate visitors about the roles and sacrifices of Jewish Londoners. We Were There Too is supported by a wide range of religious and secular Jewish organisations.

We Were There Too will provide an insight into Jewish life in London in the early part of the 20th century and give the visitor easy access to a number of diverse research sources, brought together for the first time, for personal exploration. As the site develops, more collections of rare material will be added, further enriching the opportunity to explore the period.

Whatever your age, knowledge of the First World War, research experience or understanding of computers, if you think you have a family member who lived in London during the war, or are interested to research a name in the British Jewry Book of Honour, on a Synagogue Memorial Board, a gravestone or a host of other memorials, then we will help you to find out more about them and build a Personal Record.

In keeping with Jewish tradition, the site will enable visitors to permanently memorialize their ancestors so that their passing can be commemorated annually.
If any question why we died
Tell them, because our fathers lied
-Rudyard Kipling-
