Hunting the Hun: WW1 and the German Communities in the North East

Type: Community and volunteer project, Educational project

‘Hunting the Hun’ is a community heritage project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). Although officially finished by the end of April 2017, we will continue with our research and add information to their website.

This project looks at the lives of people from German communities and their relations to the indigenous population in the North East of England before, during and after the First World War.

The website includes a lesson plan and learning resources for teachers.
