Lest We Forget

Lest We Forget explores the World War One heritage of the people of Coventry and brings their stories to life through the eyes and voices of a group of ten local people.  The exhibition focusses on the battles of Passchendaele and Ypres on the Western front in 1917, and the home front effort which supported these offences. The group were asked to produce a personal creative response from their research.
