Belgian Refugees – In Wales
A century ago Britain took in 250,000 refugees – here’s an opportunity to find out more about the 4,500 refugees who came to Wales during WW1 and to explore issues regarding current attitudes towards refugees and victims of war.

This event has been organised by the Wales for Peace team at WCIA, and Aberystwyth University’s International Politics Department. To coincide with the Remembering for Peace exhibition currently displayed at the National Library of Wales, this lecture is the first in our series of Remembering for Peace Wednesday Public Lectures.

All are welcome! Tickets are free and you can register in advance on-line to secure a place and save time,

or you can register and collect a ticket at the event.
