Resource development and research for a website telling the story of County Down and Holocaust survivors to combat racism and prejudice. http://www.downcountymuseum.com/Learning/Finding_Refuge
Working as part of a PEACE III funded project, Kenera Consultant, Shirley Lennon, researched archive material, contacted survivors and developed resources to tell the stories of the amazing people who once escaped Nazi persecution and found refuge on a farm in Millisle, County Down. The website draws together newspaper material, photographs, interviews, films and cohesively reveals the story of Millisle Farm during World War II. This multimedia resource tells the moving story of the people connected to the farm. Follow the link to to engage with the story.
