Points of Arrival – 5 short films about Jewish migration to Scotland

Each three-minute film concentrates on a historical Jewish immigrant to Scotland – where they came from, when and how they arrived, and their subsequent life here. Their stories are told by contemporary narrators, whose own lives resonate strongly with their subject matter.

The films are intended for classroom use and offer many possibilities for engaging students with the history of migration to Britain, the impact of migration on individuals, the reception of refugees, the contribution of immigrants to their new surroundings and communities.
