The Children’s War Museum has been established to present children’s experience of war through their own voices and creativity. Our partners include survivors associations, young activists, cultural institutions, museums, education charities, artists, filmakers, church community’s and galleries. We don’t have a home just now. Finding partners in Cambridge to help us develop our work is particularly important just now.
Our first exhibition of children’s art from Theresienstadt was presented with the support of the Jewish museum in Prague. It visited schools, galleries and synagogues around the UK.
Recently we presented an exhibition of art work and photography by Syrian child refugees from Lebanon and a network of young activists working across Syria. In 1937 during the Spanish civil war, 4000 child refugees were evacuated to the UK from Bilbao after the bombing of Guernica. The government offered no support to the young evacuees as they believed that it would compromise their policy of neutrality. Students, mining communities, trade unions, churches, peace unions and private supporters supported the El Nino’s who raised funds by performing concerts of music and dance from the Basque country. Cambridge became home to many of the evacuees. Bradford Peace Museum has presented an exhibition about the El Nino’s that we would like to bring to the city.
There are many other exhibitions, activities and events that we would like to introduce to Cambridge. Please do get in touch if you would be interested in helping to develop our work.
