Living Legacies 1914-18

The 'Living Legacies 1914-18' public engagement centre is a focal point for connecting academic and community researchers interested in how World War 1 lives on in the twenty-first century world.

Our Centre provides community outreach, engagement and collaboration between research organisations and researchers and community groups—including young people—interested in researching and commemorating World War 1, the broader historical and cultural context of the War, and its continuing legacies and impacts today.

On 22nd September as part of a series of roadshows with Ards and North Down Borough Council, the Living Legacies team were in Holywood Library supporting ‘Holywood Commemorates the First World War’, a community-focused event organised by the Holywood and District U3A Local History Group.‌‌ We were keen to gather some new oral histories and to record war-related memorabilia digitally, and were delighted to receive our first German contribution to the online archive.
