A new unique centre dedicated to the collection and dissemination of information on Scotland’s contribution to World War 1 opens next week.
The World War 1 History Hub, located in Edinburgh Central Library is the first such initiative in the United Kingdom and the result of a collaboration with the University of Edinburgh.
A visually stimulating, dedicated space where the history of Scotland’s contribution to WW1 is brought alive for all generations.
The main focus of the WW1 Hub will be to run workshops and seminars, and carry out military and diaspora genealogy research. Members of the public will have the chance to talk to experts and to find the story of their own family’s World War One history. There will also be a programme of poetry, art and music events, bringing Edinburgh during 1914-1918 to life.
