When The Snow Melts

Join us as we celebrate the launch of this exhibition as part of the Muslim Memory Project, charting the stories of Nottingham's Muslim communities involved in the Second World War. Nearly four million Indians were volunteers in the British Army during the two World Wars, yet their contribution is often ignored or forgotten in the UK. This exhibition draws from the personal histories of local Muslim families, using archival material to pose questions about the process of war memorialisation, empire and its interconnections.
