We are aiming to create a permanent record of the lives of London’s Jewish men and women and their families, both in the military and on the Home Front, during 1914-1919, ensuring that their stories are not lost for future generations. And we need your help.
Use our digitised resources below to find a person living in First World War London.
The British Jewry Book of Honour is a record of Jews who were killed in action and awarded military honours in the First World War, as well as the nominal rolls of Jews who served, listed by service and by regiment.
The Jewish Chronicle has very generously made their 1914 - 1920 Archives available to We Were There Too participants, free of the usual fee charged for using the Archive. This will enable you to read about the First World War years from a distinctly Jewish perspective and to research your family.
