  • Trip to the Battlefields
    Sun 18 Mar - Wed 21 Mar
    SAVE THE DATE
    Trip to the Somme and Arras areas of the Western Front
    6:30am-6:30pm
    tbc

    Responding to a number of requests for another trip to the Battlefields, we are now planning a 4-day visit to the Somme and Arras areas of the Western Front, in March 2018.

    Travelling down by the 1915 battlefield of Loos, the We Were There Too group will explore the First World War through the lives of those affected by it forever. With Project Historian, Paula Kitching, leading, we will examine the tragedy of the first day of the Battle of the Somme and its legacy, the Battle of Arras and changes in warfare technology.

    We will see the sites, museums, cemeteries and memorials which inspired some of the key poems of the period and we will reflect on the thousands of Jewish names that are carved on gravestones there; an eternal reminder that We Were There Too.

    The places we will visit include Pozieres, Thiepval, Lochnagar, Delville and Mametz Woods, the Arras Cemetery and Memorial, Vimy Ridge and the Ring of Remembrance at Notre-Dame-de-Lorette.

    A full itinerary and travel details will be available in a few weeks’ time

    Please register your interest by emailing contactus@jewsfww.london
