A Memory Map of Jewish Manchester

We are proud to have worked with Dr Rachel Lichtenstein (Manchester Metropolitan University) and Dr Ros Livshin to contribute to this Memory Map of Jewish Manchester.

Please note that the Memory Map of Jewish Manchester project is now complete. This was a Manchester Metropolitan University Project and we are unable to update the map ourselves.

This new digital resource takes the form of an interactive website which maps stories, histories and memories of the Jewish community who once lived in the Cheetham Hill, Strangeways and Hightown areas of North Manchester between the two world wars.

On the interactive map you can discover audio interviews, photographs, and information about more than 40 sites (with the ambition to include more in future as the map builds) that consistently appear in people’s recollections of these areas. To start exploring, click on one of the coloured circles and information will automatically pop up about that site. To listen to the audio clip, click the play button. Click on ‘Read More’ to view photographs, historical information, excerpts from literature and more.
