Jewish Mothers and Daughters: A Film Archive.

THE HERITAGE LOTTERY FUND has funded Pascal Theatre Company to produce a video archive of Jewish women’s experiences which is now taking place. Women of various ages, professions and of diverse backgrounds were interviewed for an exhibition taking place in 2006 at London Jewish Cultural Centre’s Ivy House. This record has been made accessible to universities, schools, museums and community centres.

The filmed archive is now deposited with The Jewish Museum, The British Library, the Imperial War Museum, London Metropolitan Archives, The Women’s Library, The Jewish Museum, The Wiener Library, and, of course, our partner for this project, London Jewish Cultural Centre.

You can view a clip of the film below:
