London attractions: Explore refugee stories at the Jewish Museum

Published: Thursday 30th of August 2012

People looking for things to do in London may enjoy a trip to the Jewish Museum which is currently hosting a moving exhibition entitled World City: Refugee Stories.

Running until September 16th, the temporary display tells the story of refugees who have come to London to flee from dangerous situations in their home countries.

It studies the stories of nine individuals, each hailing from a different country, including Poland, Sri Lanka, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Cameroon, Chile and Rwanda.

While each individual has a different story to tell, there are common threads and themes that link their diverse experiences together.

According to the museum: “The refugees’ stories demonstrate courage and resilience, a commitment to build a new life and to make a positive difference.”

The exhibition is made up of photos of the refugees in their London homes, along with items that have special meaning for them.

Furthermore, more refugee stories are explored in a film and animation.
