Doors Open Day Digital 2020
Untold Stories of Langside in WW2
Saturday 19th September, 7pm
Finn's Place, Langside Community Heritage, Langside Church & Newlands South Church have been working on a research project which will be shared during Doors Open Day Digital from 14-20 Sep.
Following on from our 2018 project 'Our War is Over' when we researched the names of those on the old Battlefield West war memorial who died in WW1, this time we have researched the names of those who died in WW2.
We have produced some videos and two guided walks around Langside and Newlands visiting the places where these men and women lived, and exploring how these areas would have looked in the 1940s.
This year's theme is 'Untold Stories' with surprising discoveries about who lived in these tenements and houses during the war.
We will be releasing the videos over Doors Open Day week and hosting a live event on Saturday 19th when we will share how the project developed and how you can get involved in adding to the research.
