Yesterday we held an event at SJAC, as part of the Refugee Scotland Festival 2017, telling the inspiring and moving story of the refugees who found safety in Scotland having escaped the horrors of Nazi Europe during the 1930s and after the Second World War. In Scotland the refugees forged new lives and went on to make significant contributions to Scottish society. Harvey Kaplan, Director of the Archives Centre, opened the event with a presentation and then there was the opportunity to view some of the material we hold about the Holocaust Era, as well as a chance to see the Grade A listed Garnethill Synagogue where SJAC is based.

Thanks to all who attended and to SJAC's volunteers for their help.
