#IWD: From the Clyebank Blitz to to Syria – sharing social history & making connections

Posted March 8th 2019 by Jill Keegan

“Moments of Freedom is a way for us to share ourselves with the community and for the community to share themselves with us.”

Moments a Freedom is a project led by New Scot women in Clydebank. As part of their work in making connections in the local community, they met with the West Dunbartonshire Women’s History group.

This was a truly inspirational meeting across generations of women sharing their stories of the impact of war on their social history through the Clydebank Blitz to being forced from Syria and arriving in Scotland.

“The young Syrian women were a delight to be with and so friendly and forthcoming. We certainly hope we can exchange another visit in the near future.”

The importance of documenting women’s social history and stories of survival has given hope for the future, looking forward with real joy and support for each other; something to be celebrated as part of International Women’s Day.
