Mixing It: The Changing Faces of Wartime Britain

IWM North

Mixing It: The Changing Faces of Wartime Britain reveals the forgotten histories of service personnel and civilians who came to Britain during the Second World War – a time when the national and ethnic diversity of the population was unprecedented.

This small, powerful display is based on specially recorded oral histories, presented alongside archive material and new research by the University of Huddersfield in partnership with IWM.

Free entry, donations welcome.
