We Were There Too held a roadshow encouraging people to bring their old family photos of ancestors who served in World War Two.
On 14th June, Jews in the First World War – We Were There Too (also known as We Were There Too, or WWTT) presented a “roadshow” at the Leeds Jewish Housing Sheila Saunders Lawn in Moortown.
The We Were There Too Roadshows are delivered in the same style as the BBC Antiques Roadshows where the organisation invites people to bring along photographs, medals, letters, and any other ephemera about the family members who may have served in the First World War. After a presentation staff and volunteers from WWTT met with individuals who brought along items of interest.
Alan Fell, WWTT Senior Project Consultant, said: “We had a brilliant afternoon! Usually, we get four or five stories, today we got 12 stories to follow up, it is so important that we get these stories now otherwise they might be lost forever.”
