Come and play our Manchester Jewish Museum Roll of Honour board game! Use your best detective skills to work as a team to complete puzzles and creative activities to piece together the lives of Jewish individuals connected to the Roll of Honour and WW1.

You’ll have to work as a team to make it to the end of the game, discovering the story of nurse Ethel Hassan and soldier Jack White. Learn how to tie an arm sling, create your own brooch design, have a family debate and piece together a comic book. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s time for cracking anagrams and piecing together clues from photographs, archive information and objects.

What you need to know

This workshop does contain war themes, so we recommend an age of 6+. Younger children can come along, but we recommend supervision by an adult – of course adult encouragement in the games are greatly encouraged!

We also recommend popping along earlier as from 12 – 2pm we will have some handling objects from the collection for people to discover close-up about the people and their lives connected to the Roll of Honour.

There will be an opportunity to look around the museum after the workshop finishes.
