Windermere exhibition: Talk and Tour 17 July 2018

Tuesday 17 July 

From Auschwitz to Ambleside and the Flying Boats of Windermere

Talk and tour 2pm

A talk and guided tour of the permanent exhibition and visit to the Calgarth Estate, led by Trevor Avery BEM, Director of the Lake District Holocaust Project. The permanent exhibition tells the story of the 300 child Holocaust survivors who came to the Lake District in the summer of 1945, and the remarkable local community that welcomed them. 

Mr Avery will offer a unique insight into the story followed by a visit to the ‘lost’ village of Calgarth Estate. The site is now green fields and a school location but there are clues to its amazing history that will be described on the walk.

In the evening, there is a free klezmer concert in Hawkshead Church, directly across the lake from Windermere.

Numbers are limited and tickets will be issued on a first come, first served basis, so early advanced booking is essential. To reserve a place please email info@ldhp.org.uk

There will also be an opportunity to see the Auschwitz Album exhibition between 28 June and 25 October 2018. This touring exhibition on loan from Yad Vashem has come to the UK for the first time. In the evening, there is a free klezmer concert in Hawkshead Church, directly across the lake from Windermere.
