Exhibitions Current

From Auschwitz to Ambleside 

The Lake District Holocaust Project and the permanent exhibition “From Auschwitz to Ambleside” are situated on the first floor of Windermere Library.

The exhibition tells the story of the three hundred child Holocaust Survivors who came from Eastern Europe to the Lake District in 1945 in order to begin their recovery from years of unimaginable suffering.

It really is a unique and inspiring story of recovery and resilience that links the horrors of the Holocaust with the beauty of the Lake District.
