In this exhibition, Jewish community members with roots from around the world welcomed visitors into their lives, by telling some of their stories through personal objects and family photographs.
This exhibition allowed visitors to connect with the individual experiences of Jewish people in Britain and see how they became part of the vibrant city of St Albans. Their fascinating stories brought to life the universal themes of sanctuary, courage, compassion, work and community.
