The diversity of the population in Britain during the Second World War was unprecedented but has played little part in public memories of war.
Join us for a one-day Workshop that explores this aspect of Second World War British history. The day includes screenings of documentary films made during the war on Germans who served in the British army and on the Chinese in wartime Britain. There are papers on how the empire came to Britain, on Europeans in the British armed forces and at the BBC, on forgotten histories and on British diversity. Coffee and lunch provided.

If attending the Workshop, please confirm if you will be having lunch by booking a lunch ticket as well.
