Story

'Shared Freedom – Shared Future' was conceived by students at Whitecross Hereford. We want to illustrate to young people their common history with Polish immigrants, in particular the stories of local post-WW2 Polish settlers to the area, who fought with Britain in the war. We want our peers to understand the burden of bravery and ultimate freedom was shared between nations – in the hope that this will lead to better understanding and cooperation between people of different nationalities within our community.

Starting from our research through local sites and museum and archive collections, we'll create a short dual language film and a dual language exhibition. These will be shown to 2,855 young people living in Herefordshire and will be accessed by a total of 8,400 people. All the relevant archive items and newspapers will be digitalised and made available online, together with the oral history recordings created in the research phase of the project and an educational resource pack.

We are very grateful to Heritage Lottery for their support and are now looking for match funding to complete our target. Thank you for your support.

      Hi there, Whitecross filmmakers. I think that your project is so worthwhile to help share the idea that we are all part of a global family. Storytelling is essential. Good luck!
