The Jews of the Armed Forces in WW2

Contact has been made with many families who have provided information, documents, photos and memories of their relatives that are featured in this archive. Much of this information has not been seen, in many cases outside of the families and we are grateful to them all for their support in sharing them in this archive.

Comments from families include:  

‘Thanks for your wonderful work, I am so glad you are collecting and saving this valuable history for posterity. Such a lovely idea and I am grateful that my uncle won’t be forgotten’

‘Thank you once again for the unexpected, and unexpectedly emotional, phone call today, I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for my family, and for all of the Jewish members of Bomber Command’


Grateful thanks go to all the families who have shared personal stories, letters, photos, documents and memories of their relative.

Thank you to my family who have supported my thousands of hours of research.
