Date: Monday 9th November 2020

Time: 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm

Gathering the Voices has collected over 50 testimonies from men and women who came to Scotland to escape from Nazi persecution. Most settled in Glasgow and had a range of jobs including a lorry driver, a pedlar, university professors, a journalist, nurses, children’s writer, teachers, a potter and an artist.

Dr Angela Shapiro is a member of the Gathering the Voices Association. She will give a presentation about some of the fascinating former refugees’ lives and tell some stories on how they found living in “Glasgae.”

This event is free of charge and will appeal to all those interested in social history.

This event will be a presentation on Zoom.
