This new museum is being built within the ground of the existing Oxfordshire Museum, Woodstock, which is currently housing its ongoing exhibitions. It has approached the Oxford Jewish Heritage (OJH) Committee to work with it on several projects. The recent exhibition entitled “Children at War” included information about child victims of war at Bergen Belsen, and children who came to Oxfordshire in the Kindertransport. This exhibit closed at the end of June 2013.
The Museum has collaborated with Oxford Jewish Congregation through OJH over the planned Bergen-Belsen exhibition opening in mid 2014. The Camp was ‘liberated’ by the Oxfordshire Yeomanry in April 1945 who found piteous conditions. The Museum will include direct knowledge of the liberation of the camp from members of the OJC who have responded to requests to contact them via the OJH. More information on this upcoming exhibition wioll appear on this site when available.
