Garnethill Refugee Trail

Wednesday, 22 June
14:00 - 16:00

By Scottish Jewish Heritage Centre

A guided walk of the Garnethill Refugee Trail, revealing places that are connected with Jewish refugees who came to Glasgow from Europe around the Second World War.

Find out where children from the Kindertransport stayed. Learn about the house on Sauchiehall street where refugees were able to meet and mix with local people. And much more!

The walk takes approximately an hour and a quarter, starting and finishing at Garnethill Synagogue. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity to view the Scotland a Sanctuary exhibition in the Scottish Jewish Heritage Centre.

This exhibition is based on material in the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre collections and shows how people from all backgrounds throughout Scotland helped those in peril. The Succah also houses searchable issues of the digitised Jewish Echo newspaper from 1928– 1950, and a digital catalogue of key items from the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre’s refugee-era collections.
