Wed 15Around the World in 80 Documents Asia and the Arctic
Time: 10:00 - 11:00

Norfolk's archives showcase much more than just life in Norfolk. In this series we ask you to choose your favourites. Before the session we will be asking members of the public to suggest documents via our social media channels. These documents will be highlighted, along with some of our own choices, during the session before putting them to a vote to decided on a selection of documents for an online exhibition.
View some highly detailed paintings from an expedition to the Arctic, uncover what was being imported from India and find out what it was like to visit or serve in areas of Asia.

Wed 22Get the Children out! Unsung heroes of the Kindertransport by Mike Levy
Time: 13:00 - 14:00

At a time when governments refused to help, ordinary people took up the mantle, often risking their lives in the process. These heroes helped to save roughly 10,000 children. Mike Levy uncovers all these stories, and many more, paying attention to the role of numerous women, in, what until now, has been a largely male dominated historical narrative. in addition Mike will talk through his latest research into a Kindertransport hostel on an estate at Cockley Cley, Norfolk, for the UK Holocaust Map.
This is a FREE hybrid event, with a small in-person audience at The Archive Centre and an online audience.
