Hackney Roots: Oral histories 18/11/2014

We recently completed a quite unique app for UK Jewish Film. We were supplied with over twenty C90 cassettes by the Hackney museum featuring interviews with senior members of the East London Jewish community recorded over 10 years ago. The cassettes were digitised, cleaned up and used as the base of our oral history listening task.

This provides a fascinating opportunity for learners to immerse themselves in the Jewish history of East London hearing memories of bustling markets, family barmitzvahs and the fight against fascism.
